Volunteer

Wenatchee River Institute and all of its programs rely on the support of volunteers. Whether you are interested in working with local elementary students, building a garden bed, serving on a committee, staffing Bird Fest Central, supporting our office tasks, becoming a Board member or helping to plan special events…WRI has a place for you. We couldn’t succeed without the help of volunteers. If you are interested in getting involved, email or phone us at 509-548-0181.
