Looking for a good reason to spend time outdoors? Enjoy working with kids? Want to make a difference in your community? Then YOU should be a volunteer Nearby Nature guide in Alton Baker Park!

Every spring and fall, Nearby Nature trains volunteers to take small groups of K-5th graders on interactive nature walks in Alton Baker Park. Using hands-on science, games, and storytelling, guides help kids connect with nature nearby.

Walks are held on weekday mornings from late April through mid-June and late September through mid-November. No experience is necessary. Free training is provided in April or September and covers everything from local natural history to the art of teaching children.

To learn more about leading nature walks as well as other Nearby Nature volunteer opportunities, call 541-687-9699 or email info@nearbynature.org and see www.nearbynature.org/volunteer/nature-guide-training-information. Our next Volunteer Orientation will be on Tuesday, September 13, from 6:30-8 pm at the Eugene Public Library (Tykeson Room). If you can't make the Volunteer Orientation contact us and let us know you are interested in volunteering. There is still time to get involved as long as you contact us by mid-September!
