The Embankment Preservation Coalition operates with an all-volunteer board and volunteers from the community.

Volunteers staff our outreach table at local fairs and festivals; organize events; distribute information to the neighborhoods; consult on historic preservation and the environment; lend their professional expertise for architectural renderings, web site design, art, and photography; and help us forge alliances with supportive local and regional organizations.

We can put people with all sorts of background and skills to work, for as little as an hour or for a long-term commitment. Volunteer! Volunteer!
