Annual Creek Cleanup
Help out Tulsa’s streams by removing litter from a Tulsa creek in celebration of Earth Day.
Earth Team Volunteer Program The Earth Team is the volunteer workforce of the Natural Resources Conservation Service NRCS and we are making a difference in every county in the nation.
NRCS partners with conservation groups and others to ensure private lands are conserved, restored, and more resilient to environmental challenges like climate change. Working side-by-side with farmers and ranchers, the NRCS identifies natural resource concerns, such as soil erosion and water quality issues, and develops unique conservation plans for restoring and protecting resources.
Earth Team volunteers are an integral part of the conservation partnership and each member takes pride in the fact that they maintain and improve our natural resources and environment on private lands.
The job of conserving our natural resources cannot be done by the government alone. We need your help in reducing soil erosion, conserving our water and improving its quality, and developing pride in our country’s natural resource heritage.

Storm Drain Stenciling/Curb Marking
Educate your community about non-point source pollution. Stencil the message: “Dump No Waste Drains to River” on storm drains in your neighborhood, or try our new “Dump No Waste” curb markers which adhere to curbs next to storm drains.
We are always in need of volunteers for special events. We have to have people man the booths or displays. We need assistance developing, setting up, and tearing down. Often times, we need help making mailing labels, copies, flyers, brochures, or other literature.
We do numerous programs for organizations and schools. We are always looking for people that would be interested in assisting with a program, being a presenter, or training others for these tasks.
Field and Restoration Assistance
What happens to all of those insects that are collected? Well, they have to be separated from all of the leaves, twigs, and grass. Come and help out with bug picking.
Grant Writing or Fund Raising
We are always looking for people to help us secure grants and/or find support for events, programs, and/or projects.
Help out in the district office. From taping maps for use by customers, to answering phones and organizing brochures, we can always use assistance.
