    USACE Celebrates National Volunteer Week: April 17-23
    National Volunteer Week 2022 will take place April 17-23. Throughout next week, we will be highlighting volunteers from around the country with daily Volunteer Spotlight cards. Here are a few ways you can join the Volunteer Week celebration:

    1. Thank a volunteer. Say thank you to the volunteers at your projects! Send an email, host a recognition event, post about them on social media, present them with an America the Beautiful volunteer pass if they are eligible, or nominate them for an award. https://c orpslakes.erdc.dren.mil/employees/volunteer/awards.cfm

    2. Host a volunteer event. Invite visitors to join a volunteer event at your project. Be sure to post your volunteer event on Volunteer.gov

    3. Ask volunteers to share their volunteer experience. Invite volunteers to share a photo and their volunteer story. Volunteer stories can be used for local media, on project or district social media accounts, or as news articles on USACE websites.

    For Day 1 of Volunteer Week, we are featuring volunteers from the Great Lakes and Ohio River Division. Mark Rawdon at Alum Creek Lake and Tom and Kristi Battles at Lake Barkley are our first volunteers to spotlight. These three volunteers have collectively served over 16,000 hours during their time with USACE.

    A big THANK YOU to all of our outstanding volunteers! As a result of their efforts, USACE is able to continue to meet the increasing demands of the public for clean, safe recreation opportunities while providing a healthy environment for visitors to enjoy.
