Volunteer Opportunities

Cleaner Streams Program We need your help to protect our lakes and streams!

The City of Lincoln Watershed Management Division and Keep Lincoln-Lancaster County Beautiful (KLLCB) are working to help keep our streams, lakes, and creeks beautiful. You can be a part of the effort too by volunteering to conduct a Stream Clean-up, Adopt-a-Stream, or be part of the Stormwater Street Team.

Why Get Involved?

Everyone in the community can take an active role in assuring the well being of the Lincoln community and its water resources. Water pollution affects every one of us. By getting involved as a volunteer, community members can help reduce surface water pollution, improve the riparian and aquatic habitats, improve stream aesthetics, provide for a more sustainable stream, and learn more about our local ecosystems.

Who Can Participate?

This volunteer program is designed for volunteer groups, scouting groups, youth organizations, neighborhood associations, churches, and anyone who is concerned about the condition of the city's waterways and willing to commit time and energy for storm drain marking or organizing a stream clean-up. Volunteers must be at least 19 years of age or volunteering with a supervising adult.
