The Nature Connection is seeking volunteers to join our team in delivering therapeutic nature-based programing to the elders of Whiney Place (assisted living and memory care) and Beaumont (skilled nursing and rehab) at Salmon Health in Northborough. Monthly programs feature fresh plants, live animals, natural materials, and seasonal themes/content. Nature Connection programs puts nature into the hands of people in our communities that cannot go outside for a walk to clear their mind, enjoy the autumn colors, or listen to the birds.
Volunteer with The Nature Connection and help share nature’s capacity to heal, teach and create joy.
Volunteers join us for just 2 hours, each month in: Feb, March, April, May, and June, on the 1st Wednesday of the month at Salmon Health's facility in Northborough from 9:45 am - 12:30 pm. This is a great opportunity for those with a strong appreciation for nature and animals, and would like to share it with others.

About The Nature Connection
PO BOX 155, 40 Stow Street, CONCORD, MA 01742, US
The Nature Connection is a nonprofit organization that brings the curiosity, joy, and healing power of nature to those with limited access to the outdoors. Programs feature seasonal themes, fresh plants, live animals, and natural materials.
The Nature Connection enables children and elders, many confined to institutions, to have direct contact with the natural world. Transporting live animals, natural materials and the arts, we provide educational and therapeutic programs to at-risk youth, people with disabilities and elders in Concord and Greater Boston. Founded in 1983, the Nature Connection brings individuals together with nature's capacity to heal and to teach.
We'll work with your schedule.
