The Watershed Needs Volunteers!

The Watershed Nature Center welcomes enthusiastic volunteers who are committed to maintaining our native habitats and enhancing our community. Volunteers have a direct impact on our mission and goals; they participate in dozens of projects that help to preserve our wetlands, prairies, and forests. We value the skills, abilities, and time of all our volunteers, and hope to provide each one with a rich and rewarding experience.

 

How Can You Help the Watershed?

You don't need a green thumb to help us grow. Here are some of the ways volunteers can support the Watershed and its mission:

  1. Restore habitats and native plantings

  2. Set up for special events and programs

  3. Provide clerical and office help

  4. Participate in special committees, such as Education and Restoration initiatives

  5. Help host events at the WNC, assist with running art, craft, and science activity stations

  6. Distribute flyers in the community to promote WNC special events
     

Current Opportunities

Watershed Host

Volunteer hosts help us staff the Welcome Center during office hours. Hosts are trained on the history and mission of the Nature Center so that they may act as an interpretive guide, greeter, and ambassador in the community. 

Watershed Educator

Our educators help facilitate programming designed to foster quality environmental education. Volunteers act as a guide for various educational programs from field trips to homeschooling to Discovery Day - and everything in between.

High School and College Internships

Internships at Watershed are diverse and flexible. We are currently seeking part-time unpaid interns for data entry, marketing, and events. This is a great opportunity for dedicated individuals looking to gain valuable experience while making an impact within your community.
