Volunteering at The Wilderness Center                Volunteer Registration Form

Volunteers are the heart and soul of The Wilderness Center. Everything that happens here is touched by volunteers and each is important and appreciated.  It’s the joy of giving, the feeling of accomplishment, and best of all, bringing you together with wonderful people who share a love of nature, are eager to learn more about it, want to preserve it and of course, pass it on for others to enjoy.

Volunteer Opportunities available:

Nature Store Volunteers ring up sales, unpack stock, and sell merchandise. They assist customers, answer questions, and direct visitors.

Artisans keep us up and running! They mow grass, build signs and bridges, maintain trails, paint, and keep TWC beautiful!

Docents are outdoor teachers. They help thousands of school children, Scouts, and other groups experience nature first-hand.

Greeters work the front desk in the lobby where they meet and greet visitors and guests. A big smile, friendly demeanor, and enthusiasm are required!

Land Stewards work to keep TWC’s lands healthy, natural, and native, both here at the Headquarters Tract and on our satellite properties.

Mailing Crew collates, sorts, folds, tapes, and labels our monthly Members’ Newsletter and other important mailings.

Office volunteers share the load with the office staff and perform countless variety of daily chores, including answering the phone, stuffing envelopes, and sorting mail.

Special Events Volunteers may dress up as a firefly for the Enchanted Forest, experience a night of glamor at Earthly Delights, sling birdseed and eat doughnuts at the Birdseed Sale…

Trail Monitors have the most relaxed volunteer schedule. They show up whenever they want to, take a stroll and say “Hi” to visitors and pick up trash on the way. Some also remove obstacles, pull invasive plants, and help with highway clean-up.
