Opportunities for volunteering within the MCWD:
WHEP offers youth (ages 8-19) the opportunity to learn about wildlife habitat managment and fisheries managment. After the program, participants will be able to judge the quality of a wildlife habitat, have a broader understanding of habitat management practices, and have learned about damage management. The program is a hands-on environmental education program that has been awarded the Conservation Education Award by The Wildlife Society in 1996 and is proud to certify wildlife biologists nationwide.
Carver County's Volunteer Stream Monitoring Partnership (VSMP) was created in 1998 to coordinate a volunteer stream monitoring system within the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area.
The MCWD can also coordinate with Eagle Scouts who have a project that can affect water quality.
