Volunteers are an important part of what makes our community a great place to live, work and play. Whether you're picking up trash in parks, serving on a City Commission or helping out at a special event, your volunteer efforts make a big difference to the community. The following volunteer opportunities are currently available:
Nominate a Watershed Champion
You may know someone who picks up litter or cleans out leaves from street curbs or storm drains. Maybe a group of scouts taught others about protecting the environment. Have you built a rain garden or protected a lake with shoreline buffer plants? The City is seeking nominations for Watershed Champion Awards. Residents, associations, organizations, and businesses are eligible. Nominations are due by October 15.
2013 Watershed Champions (Residents): Ann Iversion & Mary Simpson made a difference in their neighborhood and Coventry Pond, strengthening volunteerism and engaging residents in awareness and improvement activities.
2014 Watershed Champions (Residents): Jerry Engelke tirelessly represented Eagan for nearly 11 years on the board of Gun Club Lake Watershed Management Organization; Jean Oberle regularly picks up litter throughout the community and organized a cleanup effort by fellow residents around McCarthy Lake in Patrick Eagan Park.
