Greet and welcome visitors to the beautiful Effie Yeaw Nature Center. Assist at the front desk, answer phones, transfer calls, answer questions, stock merchandise, handle sales and event registrations, sign up new members, sell parking passes, and assist with miscellaneous small tasks to help the staff. Must be able to use a computer, love nature and enjoy visiting with guests!

Work with fun and interesting staff in a beautiful Nature Study Area. 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 and will require more frequent training shifts initially.

We are currently seeking a receptionist for Saturday and Sunday mornings and afternoons from 9am to 12:30pm and 12:30pm to 4:00pm.

You can also be a substitute or "on call" receptionist, which requires an initial series of dates for training. We usually know a week or more in advance when we will need a substitute.

COVID-19 policies: Masks are required at all times, regardless of vaccination status, while in any Effie Yeaw Nature Facility.
