We need your help to connect people and nature at our Dr. James K. Bissell Nature Center in Ashtabula County. This is the first resource of its kind in the county and provides educational opportunities for local residents and schools otherwise unavailable to them in the area. Nature Center staff volunteers encourage visitors to embrace TNC’s mission of conserving the lands and waters on which all life depends by allowing them to learn about our work and the importance of maintaining healthy natural environments.

Nature Center staff volunteers aid in the planning and development of:

  • Exhibits, displays, and interactive educational materials
    • This will require volunteers with teaching, artistic, and construction abilities
  • Collaborative efforts with local schools to provide high-quality educational programs for schoolchildren in Ashtabula County
  • Educational programs for visiting students
  • Interpretive hikes for visiting school groups
  • Nature Center facilities maintenance and management
  • Administrative/office duties such as scheduling, filing, and data management

Time commitment: Team Nature Center Volunteers staff the Bissell Nature Center during open hours in addition to leading activities for school groups and hosting special events for the community. Monthly meetings and other planning assignments may also be required. Training will be provided.
