Louisville Nature Center
The Louisville Nature Center (LNC) has a small staff of part time employees. Since the staff is so small, the center utilizes volunteers in many ways. Volunteers work on education programs, do office work, help with cleaning/gardening/general maintenance, and assist with upkeep and maintenance of the trails. The function of the volunteer coordinator is to recruit new volunteers, develop volunteer welcome packets, interact with volunteers to help build loyalty and ensure all volunteers understand the many volunteer options available at LNC. The volunteer coordinator assists LNC’s Administrative Assistant with maintaining volunteer information and training of new volunteers on various aspects of the organization.
All volunteer opportunities take place during our office hours
Monday - Friday 9 am - 4 pm
Some opportunities are available on
Saturdays 9 am - 4 pm

To provide nature education and encourage stewardship in an urban forest.

Among our unique features are: a native wildflower garden and pond, butterfly gardens, hiking trails through the Beargrass Creek State Nature Preserve, a one-of-a-kind bird blind, wildlife exhibits, Beargrass Creek watershed exhibit, a meeting room, and our library--a great place to do research and spend some time indoors when the weather is too hot, cold, or rainy to study nature outside.
