Volunteering and Collaborating with PEEC

The establishment of the PEEC Nature Center has been a collaborative effort resulting from the work of many devoted volunteers. Nearly everything we do depends critically on volunteers and collaborations with other organizations.

Where do I fit in? Anywhere you'd like to! PEEC has the need for people of many talents. All it takes is an interest in any aspect of the natural world and a willingness to share your interest. The hours and level of commitment for our volunteers varies widely.

Examples of Volunteers

Staffing Volunteer You'll open the center to the public, answer guest questions, register people for classes, answer phones, and other light clerical duties. What does it take? Reliability, friendliness, and a willingness to learn the ropes; time commitment is variable.

Teacher or Speaker Teach a class or public lecture on your favorite nature-related topic for adults or children.

Earth Day Planning The Earth Day committee organizes our largest event, the Earth Day Festival, which is held in April each year. Many forms of help are needed, and greatly appreciated! No special skills required.

Teacher's Assistant Assist teachers with children's programs.

Handyman, Painter, or Woodworker Assist with various projects, as needed.

Gardener Help with weeding and maintenance of flower gardens and grasses.

Artist Provide assistance with exhibits, or help with the gift shop.

On-call Helper No specific skills needed, just a willingness to help out occasionally with staffing or special events.
