Volunteersare needed for many different types of programs, projects and activities. Here are some examples:

  • Assist with grounds cleanup, landscaping and gardening at one of our scheduled volunteer days (once a month from April-October)
  • Many indoor and some outdoor spaces will need a fresh coat of paint (or two)
  • Lend your handyman skills for basic carpentry and repairs on our main building and cabins

Please Contact Us to discuss these and other volunteer opportunities!

Meet some of our wonderful volunteers, who do so much to help the Center succeed and grow!
