Do you have a few hours every week or every month? Want to make new friends and learn new things? What ever your skill or talent, we need you.

At Trout Lake there is something for almost everyone and every skill level. If you like the great outdoors we can always use help in the garden or in the woods. If you like people we can use your help staffing our museum and greeting guests. If you have have a love for teaching we service the Lake County School System and teach field trip classes throughout the year. We also have maintenance, painting, cleaning and just general care that always needs help to keep the center ready for anything. Trout Lake loves the friends and volunteers that we have had through the years and would like the opportunity to show some new volunteers the same care and camaraderie. Please call or come out to see for yourself the beauty that is Trout Lake.
