You can support the Nature Center in many ways. Whether you have an hour to spend helping in the garden or want to take an afternoon to share your love of nature with students, you can make a difference by volunteering your talents and energy. Click on the links to the left (or below) to learn more about how you can volunteer at the North Mountain Park Nature Center.
Volunteers are needed on a somewhat regular basis to help out in a variety of areas…
Gardeners, create your own schedule or join a drop-in group of gardeners every Wednesday at 10:00am.
Or learn something new and pass it on! If you love kids and the outdoors, you can teach K-5 students with our School Program Field Trips.
You can also assist with service learning
programs, work parties and free community events like the Bear Creek Salmon Festival.
