Community members help sustain the WERC in many ways:
- Volunteer docent program: Over 40 local residents have joined the Watsonville Wetlands Watch volunteer docent program. Our volunteers find opportunities at the WERC for continuing education, assisting with field trips and class visits, and designing and maintaining our visitor center and classroom. For more information on our volunteer programs, contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Kathy Fieberling.
- Committee support: Community volunteers have collaborated to plan and build the WERC Visitor Center displays, greenhouse, and landscape plan. Representatives of local environmental agencies, businesses, and non-profit groups have joined the Fitz WERC Program Advisory Committee, which has helped advise environmental education programs at the center.
We invite you to participate in our growing volunteer community! Take a look at our Event Calendar.
