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 while pursuing a common goal to protect our natural world. We encourage individuals, families, and groups from schools, churches, corporations, and youth groups to contact us about volunteer opportunities available.
Habitat Outdoor Restoration Work Days at Hawthorne Hill Nature Center
Improve our natural areas by helping to remove invasive plants and shrubs, planting native plants, and general cleanup of trails. We welcome both individuals and groups. Come out and volunteer at Hawthorne Hill Nature Center! Tools are provided. Wear long pants and closed toe shoes. All volunteers must register one week in advance. All volunteers will be required to sign a waiver to participate and register online by registering on the City’s Elgin Allies Volunteer website and we will notify you when a volunteer opportunity comes up that you might enjoy. You will also be able to search for opportunities on your own that fit your schedule, your interest and a cause you want to assist.
