Open Lands & Trails Seeking Volunteers
Teach kids to LOVE nature.
Open Lands and Trails hosts hundreds of children in our environmental education programs. Each year, we look for new people to help us teach these children about the natural environment and the animals and plants that live there. No experience or knowledge necessary; all training and materials provided. Volunteers should be in good physical condition. Background check is required for all volunteers.
Students range from 3 to 13 | Volunteers range from 18 to 80+
