Private Event Inquiry

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Great River Greening! Volunteer stewardship experiences are beneficial to companies, employees, and the community. A corporate volunteer project can result in greater employee morale, increased job satisfaction, enhanced corporate image, and stronger connections between a company and its community. Volunteer experiences can also be great team building and community engagement opportunities.

    What are you looking for in a private event or service opportunity?
    Great River Greening has a wide variety of opportunities that run the gamut of conservation activities. We will do our best to meet your preferences, but the activities available during any given time are ultimately determined by the conservation priorities at our sites.
     
  • Do you have a specific date in mind? Or specific days of the week? Perhaps only a specific time of the year?
  • A typical habitat restoration event is three to four hours long and includes both service work time and breaks for water and educational question and answer sessions.
  • Our project sites are spread throughout the greater Twin Cities area. Where would you prefer to hold your event? E.g. a city, county, watershed district, or even a maximum driving distance from your groups location.
  • Our projects have a wide range of needs, please let us know what types of projects your group would be willing to assist with. Note: this list may not cover all tasks available. Select all that apply.
  • Some locations and activities can me more demanding than others. Select all that apply.
