Greet visitors and create an atmosphere of active hospitality in the Nature Center. Help answer questions and inspire guests about the plants, animals, and other natural and cultural history of the area. Provide information about trails, programs, and other local interests. There are opportunities to help with critter care, and potentially assist with display and other projects.
Tuesday-Friday afternoon shifts are 1150am-4:30pm; weekend shifts 9:20am-1pm and 1-4:30pm. We ask Nature Center Hosts to volunteer at least once a month and to commit to at least one year to make the training worthwhile. We can do a meet and greet without commitment to help see if this is the right volunteer opportunity for you!
We provide lots of initial (and ongoing) on-the-job training to get new volunteers started anytime during the year. You don’t have to know a lot about nature or the area already, just a desire to learn and share! Contact Phil with questions. We will contact you provide a bit more info and to schedule an initial meet and greet visit with staff!
Check out our Parent - Child Naturalist Team info for opportunities for a parent (or grandparent) and child to volunteer together in the Nature Center!
