Volunteer Opportunities

Learn About Nature & Your Valuable Role

At Hawthorne Hill Nature Center, we value volunteers. Kind, helpful, patient people with a sense of humor and a desire to learn should consider joining our team to make new friends with common interests and to grow as a person. We encourage individuals, families, and groups from schools, churches, corporations, and youth groups to contact us about special interests or projects. We have a lot to do and are very grateful for people who want to get involved.
