Carson Nature Center Parent/Child Host Team
South Platte Park
Child (age 10 and up) and Parent (or grandparent or guardian) volunteer as hosts in the Nature Center. Spend quality time with your child (or grandchild!) and help young person develop confidence, social skills, and a volunteer ethic while you learn and have fun participating in this award winning program! Get training as naturalist interpreters and help greet the public, answer questions, care for exhibit specimens, and learn about nature.
Volunteer at least 1 shift per month: Tuesday-Friday afternoon shifts 1150am-4:30pm; weekend shifts 9:20am-1pm and 1-4:30pm. We ask a 1 year commitment to make the training investment worth it. We can do a meet and greet without commitment to help see if this is the right volunteer opportunity for you!
Lots of initial and ongoing on-the-job training provided to get new volunteers started anytime during the year. Once we are notified of your interest, we will contact you provide a bit more info and to schedule an initial meet and greet visit with staff - thanks!
