We rely on volunteer support for much of the work we do. We are building a strong community of Waterfall Keepers to help with our projects and enable us to implement new ones.

Please join us!

We know how waterfallers spend a lot of time researching. How would you like to contribute to Waterfall Keepers of NC while you’re doing it? We’re seeking all manner of items–historical literature, artifacts, old photos–items that you may run across in your pursuits. We’ll happily accept donations, of course, but we may be willing to purchase certain items. Learn more.

Do you have experience with grant writing, fundraising events, or fundraising solicitations? If so, we need you!
