Stokes Nature Center relies on volunteers to help carry out our mission to provide nature education to people of all ages.  SNC’s volunteer program offers an opportunity for meaningful community service.  As a volunteer, you will learn from experienced naturalists, develop new skills, and cultivate your love for nature.

I have to say [volunteering] is an incredibly rewarding and enjoyable experience. Hundreds upon hundreds of kids smiling, that feeling of really helping something we all love, and time spent outdoors are just some of the most basic rewards that you will get out of this opportunity.
— Ted T. SNC Parent, about volunteering at our Annual Halloween Journey

Group service projects

Group service projects vary depending on the group size. You can participate in one of our projects or create and design your very own! We also regularly work with Scouts on their capstone projects.  Please note, we do require the scout to take the leadership role in planning the project, recruiting and overseeing volunteers, and executing all stages of the project.  We’ll work to provide necessary support, and assist scouts in determining meaningful projects that will help develop skills and benefit Stokes Nature Center long after the project is completed. Contact us to see how your group can volunteer at SNC today!

special events

SNC hosts a variety of special events throughout the year, for both raising funds and engaging the community.  These events are all-hands-on-deck for our small staff, and we always appreciate assistance with decorations, marketing, handing out flyers and hanging posters, and setting up and running the event!  If you’re looking for a creative, short-term opportunity to volunteer, this would be a great fit. 

Current Events:

  • Earth Day Soiree
  • Pre-Opening Week: Our nature center is coming out of hibernation on March 21st! We could use help cleaning and prepping the center for this upcoming season.
