Education Volunteers

EEOur educators help Lake County residents and visitors to learn about Lake County's unique history and the natural wonders of our plant and animal communities. We provide comprehensive environmental education programs as well as outdoor adventure, youth stewardship, special events, history and other visitor services. Volunteers can choose from a wide variety of positions such as visitor services, Museum docents, family nature programming and staffing special events. 

Explore education volunteer opportunities below. If one of these sounds right for you, fill out the Volunteer Interest Form, or if you have any questions, call our General Offices at 847-367-6640 and ask to speak with our education volunteer coordinator.
