Put the NAT in NATuralist

Join our newest volunteer group—the NATuralists. Engage our guests with fun, interactive games that connect people to nature in a unique way. You don’t have to be an expert in natural history, you just need to be outgoing, able to easily approach strangers, and curious about nature. The next training will be scheduled in late February or early March. Minimum age is 18 though we will consider parent/child pairs. We ask for a minimum 2 1/2 hour shift three times a month for 6 months. Apply today to be considered for the next training in the Spring. Your application will be kept on file.
