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.
