SERV Educational Volunteer Opportunities

Public education and outreach activities play a vital role in protecting and maintaining our water resources, and therefore, the quality of life we have in Seminole County. Volunteers work on special projects and assist in the education of our children and residents. Volunteers, in most instances, act as an extension of County staff, helping to achieve much more than staff could do alone. Learn more »
