Work with an fun and interesting staff in a beautiful park. Sometimes the Nature Center is busy and active, other times it is quiet and slow. Volunteer receptionists may bring a book, crossword puzzles, etc. to pass the time on slow days, but always be ready to handle the buzz and excitement of guests of all ages, ringing phones, and interesting questions. Receptionists must have a clear phone voice to give directions on how to get to the Nature Center and to answer other questions as needed.
The receptionists help free up the Nature Center Staff to lead programs, help visitors with questions and to take care of emergencies. Our receptionists are very important to us and are the "face" of the Effie Yeaw Nature Center. Training is provided.
