Nature Education


Volunteers play an important support role in educating visitors about the environment, science, and teaching outdoor skills. Commitments vary with position. Comprehensive training is provided.

Youth Program Guides teach nature themed school field trip programs. Volunteers ideally commit to at least one weekday per week from 9 am–2 pm.

Public Program Guides assist or lead nature programs and activities for a variety of age groups.

Nature Walk Guides lead walks, for example, Hike Lake County, Walk with a Naturalist, and more. No prior natural history knowledge is needed.
