Only a handful of recognized events remain on the 2020 eventing calendar, which means there are still a few opportunities to get out and volunteer.

We’ve compiled some resources on volunteering with COVID-19 regulations in mind. We’ll reference this list each week in Volunteer Nation, so take a few moments to familiarize yourself with what’s new and different.
