Volunteer Opportunities on the NETT
Volunteering is the lifeblood of the NETT! The NETT Coalition welcomes volunteer efforts along the rail-banked corridors or through committee work.
The NETT Coalition Board has three committees open to members of the public. These committees currently meet quarterly, on the same day as the NETT Supporters Meeting. If you have an interest in volunteering for one of these committees, please email the Committee Coordinator using the ‘Contact Us’ link on the homepage menu.
