Can I register a group for the Watershed Wide Event?

Yes, we love volunteer groups! This event is a perfect opportunity for scout troops, church groups, school clubs, etc. To register your group, use our online registration and select the “I am a group leader registration a group” option. Your teammates can then register individually and select the “I am registering as part of a group” option to sign up under your group name. We will keep everyone in your group at the same site so that you all can work together on the event!

Is the Watershed Wide Event family-friendly?

Yes, our event is open to volunteers of all ages. We request that volunteers under the age of 14 be accompanied by a parent or chaperone. Volunteers over the age of 14 may volunteer on their own with written parental consent.

How do I sign up for a specific site?

Most volunteers do not have a preference for a site and let our Event Coordinator assign you to where your help will be most needed. However, many volunteers have a special connection to a specific site and want to make sure to work there for Watershed Wide. If you would like to sign up for a specific site, please e-mail our Event Coordinator Adra at volunteer@tryoncreek.org and she will be happy to make sure you are registered for your requested site.

I live really close to the site where I will be working. Can I just meet the group at the site instead of going to the registration at St. Mark Presbyterian Church?

We encourage our participants to join us for registration and the post-work lunch celebration at St. Mark Presbyterian church. However, we understand those who live near a site would prefer to not travel to the church.

If you plan to meet directly at a site, we would appreciate your pre-registration online. On the day of the event, please plan on meeting the group at the designated site at 9:45am.

I have a food restriction. Will I be able to eat the post-work lunch?

Yes! We will be offering gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian snack and lunch items. However, if you have a specific food restriction you’d like us to know about, please contact us and we will be happy to accommodate your needs.
