Volunteer at Beaver Ponds!
We love volunteers. We can always use an extra pair of hands or the donation of special skills. Whether it is helping out teaching classes with kids and adults, working to maintain the interpretive trail, working in our greenhouse, from assisting with animal care to identifying and counting tree and plant species or helping with our fiber program there is always lots to do at Beaver Ponds! We also hold events throughout the year when we need volunteers.We greatly value the time and energy our volunteers invest in our mission, and in return we work hard to provide an interesting and educational volunteer experience.
