School Program Assistants help meet school classes at the park and assist and lead guided nature tours of the park. Assistants can specialize in certain topic areas or learn several of the programs offered. School Programs are offered Tuesday through Friday for all but winter of the school year, and times vary, but often fall between 9:30 am until around 1:30 pm. School Program volunteers are asked to help with at least 12 programs/year. Assistants receive initial orientation on nature and wildlife skills for those programs. They are also invited to twice annual Volunteer BrushUp trainings and annual recognition and social events.
Public Program volunteers check in program attendees and assist the program leader. These programs usually occur in the evening or on weekends. Some children's camps occur during weekdays when school is not in session.
