Volunteer Orientation

Before you can start, all volunteers must attend a Volunteer Orientation session and sign a waiver. Volunteer Orientation sessions are held the first Wednesday of each month at both 8:30am and 5:30pm at our offices in Trappe, Maryland. Be sure to download our Volunteer Application and Waiver, complete it, and bring it to your orientation session. The Volunteer Waiver will need to be completed annually.

To register for your Volunteer Orientation or for more information on volunteer opportunities, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Nora Skiver at 410-476-3204 or at volunteers@habitatchoptank.org.
