If you've attended a FMR event, chances are you've worked alongside a Super Volunteer! Super Volunteers can be easily identified by the crest upon their shirt (see photo, above).
What does a Super Volunteer do?
A Super Volunteer attends four (or more) volunteer events over the course of a year – or completes their pledge to pull garlic mustard, or volunteers for 20 or more hours in other ways.
FMR hosts approximately 60 public cleanups, hauls, pulls or plantings throughout the Twin Cities metro-area annually.
— Most take place between April and November and are two to three hours in length.
— No experience is required and our top-notch stewardship staff take care of all the training, tools, directions and the rest. We'll also take photos and post the album to Flickr. We appreciate your time and want to make the most of it!
— You can sign up for whichever event(s) work for you. While most events require advance registration, no application or long-term commitment is required.
What's in it for me?
Besides knowing you've helped us further our mission and better protect the river, Super Volunteers also recieve an identifying T-shirt, a great deal of thanks, as well as advanced notice of our most popular events.
Tell me more about this T-shirt...
Over the past 10 years, no two t-shirts have been the same. All are printed with soy-based ink at a local, independent, socially responsible shop.
