RRF is often in need of volunteers to work both in the field and the office on scheduled occasions. If you are looking to volunteer at one of our annual events such as National Public Lands Day or Earth Day please visit our Events page.

Office Volunteer Opportunities
Office volunteers support administrative activities within our office at the Milwaukee Environmental Consortium. Activities include but are not limited to mailings, data entry and website maintenance. Office Volunteer Opportunities are open to all interested parties although we have only a sporadic need for office volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator.

Field Volunteer Opportunities
Field volunteers support our habitat restoration projects by removing invasive species such as buck thorn and garlic mustard, as well as planting native trees and plants. Individuals must be able to work comfortably outside and have proper attire for hiking on dirt and gravel terrain. Work gloves and tools will be provided. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator.

Service Learning Opportunities
Currently service learning opportunities are only open to students from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. If you would like to speak to us about working with RRF to satisfy your service learning hours please contact the service learning department and your appropriate university before contacting our Volunteer Coordinator. If you are a university and looking for additional service learning partners for your students please contact us!
