If you love nature, teaching kids, getting out on the land, or simply lending a helping hand, Indian Creek Nature Center is your place! ICNC’s important work would not be possible without volunteers. They share their unique talents and enthusiasm with an eagerness to learn. Volunteers unselfishly add an amazing source of energy and community support. From school field trips or special events to daily operations and land stewardship, all aspects of the Nature Center are enriched by the dedication of our volunteers.
We have opportunities to align with varying interests and skills:
Special Events including:
Paddle Day – January
Maple Syrup Festival – March
Women in Nature – April
Spring Plant Sale – May
Concerts at the Creek – June, July
Summer Nature Camps – June, July, August
Nature’s Noel – December
If you want to share your love of nature with the next generation, consider becoming a teacher-naturalist (TN)! TN’s lead elementary students on visits to the Nature Center as part of their science curriculum. You do NOT need to be a teacher to be a teacher-naturalist! The Nature Center provides a complete training several times throughout the year.
