Robert's Background Information:
I want to join AmeriCorps and become a VISTA worker because I want to help the community that I grew up in. This community is Morris Drive, West Virginia. Morris Drive has formed the Morris Creek Watershed Association and I was asked if I was interested in the position. I am honored to be asked to join. I want to give back to the community and aid in the restoration of the Acid Mine Drainage that has plagued this creek. I believe with my personal interest and my degree field in college that I can be an asset to the Watershed. I look forward to the opportunity of being a part of this Watershed.
Why Do I Volunteer:
I helped the Morris Creek Watershed because as I kid I could not play in the creek and it was very dirty. It has been a privledge to see the Watershed grow and I hope to be able to help it more in the future. The Watershed began with litter pick and now has grown to Acid Mine Drainage projects. I have a since of accoplishment that I was able to be involved in the beginning stages and hope to be able to help again soon.
