CONSERVE. CONNECT. INSPIRE.

BECOMING A VOLUNTEER
While our building remains closed to the public, we are offering many opportunities outside!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering! We appreciate those who dedicate their time, energy and skills to our mission. Without their generosity, achieving our goals wouldn't be possible.

As a Nature Center volunteer, you will enjoy connecting with the community, making a positive impact on the environment, meeting new people, expanding your wealth of knowledge and inspiring an appreciation for nature and the environment in others. Volunteers 13 years of age or older are welcome at all levels of participation. Group volunteers are also welcome and should click below to get started.

The first step to becoming a volunteer is to complete the volunteer application followed by an interview and background check. We strive to help you find the right volunteer placement to fit your interests and availability. The application and interview help us get to know you better and highlight possibilities that are present at a given time.

Approved volunteers active within our program are able to sign-up for upcoming opportunities by clicking on an event below. You will be asked to complete a profile with contact information in Volunteer Hub in order to directly sign-up for those opportunities.
