For the last 29 years the Montgomery County Volunteer center has been coordinating a county-wide Community Service Week in October. This year’s Community Service Week is from Friday, October 16 through Sunday October 25, 2015.
In honor of Community Service Week, DEP is sponsoring several volunteer opportunities to help protect our environment. Last year, volunteers helped collect more than 500 pounds of trash!
Volunteer/hand-on activities available through our Stream Stewards program. Jump to the Volunteer Details section to learn about registration.
