The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Become a Junior Explorer Docent for Friends of Edgewood and help children of all ages experience the wonder of nature. No special expertise or botanical knowledge is required to be a Junior Explorer Docent. Only a passion for nature and a love of kids.

Join other docents on a hike to share information and interpretive techniques
Attend enrichment programs and special training workshops
Review our "how to" resources
