Volunteers are the heart and soul of Nearby Nature. They come from all walks of life and include everyone from elementary school students to wise elders.
Every year, volunteers donate 6,500+ hours of time and talents to our programs! They lead nature walks, do classroom visits, staff information booths, and help with summer daycamps. They plant gardens, pull ivy, and paint murals. They stuff envelopes, post flyers, take pictures, do litter patrol, and help with fundraisers. Sometimes volunteers even dress up like frogs or dragonflies! Fun!
Volunteering is a great way to invest in your community, meet fascinating people, and learn about local natural history. You can find out more about specific types of programs below.
Our next training is our Summer Volunteers/Interns Training on June 8 and June 9 in the Learnscape.
