Are you looking for a way to get involved in your community?  Sometimes that might mean being an usher at your church or working at the food shelf or hosting a program on KAXE/KBXE.  If you are a scientist, there is a new program that could use your help in combating Aquatic Invasive Species like zebra mussels, starry stonewort and others.
