We Need Volunteers to Help with School Children’s Field Trips to the Park
Do you like nature and being outside with children? Are you concerned that many children are not developing an appreciation for nature? You can help by volunteering on our school field trips. No experience is necessary! We will train you and mentor you with naturalists and experienced volunteers. You can volunteer once a week or once a month. It's rewarding and it's fun!
