Volunteers & Interns

In 2014, 80 volunteers worked 499 hours for our organization. Their time was valued at $11,241.18. We host several interns at a time year-round from a variety of colleges in Alabama. We also have volunteers who help here and there with events.

In the past we have had volunteers and interns from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, the University of Alabama, Auburn University, Birmingham Southern College, Montevallo University and Samford University. Interns typically work on research projects that interest them, from cataloging invasive aquatic species to compelling data on toxic water releases to the Coosa. If you’re interested in volunteering or interning with us please contact us at volunteer@coosariver.org.
