Share your love of science and nature! For 40 years, the Environmental Volunteers has been promoting the understanding of and responsibility for the environment through hands-on science education. The EV’s headquarters is the EcoCenter, a public nature center and education resource in the Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve.

The EcoCenter is open to the public on select days, and our docents are there to greet the public and share their love of the outdoors with visitors of all ages. They might be leading nature hikes in the Baylands, guiding visitors on our interactive touchscreen displays, or sharing hands-on learning activities about local birds, native plants, earthquakes, and more.

Si te gusta la naturaleza y quieres compartir tu pasión con los demás, el EV es para usted. All skill and knowledge levels welcome! We offer complete training, flexible scheduling and the ability to participate in a wide variety of nature and science programs geared to audiences of all ages. It's a great opportunity for lifelong learning and to join a community of dedicated people who discover, laugh, and team up to inspire others.

If you want to become a part of the EV community, or are interested in finding out more, please contact Nikki, our Volunteer Coordinator, at We look forward to hearing from you!
