Volunteer Appreciation Week: April 18-24

We love our volunteers — THANK YOU for all you do for Indian Creek Nature Center!

So far in 2021, our volunteers have reported over 800 hours of service. Thanks to your time, skill and dedication, we are able to create champions of nature in our community. This impact will last generations.

Despite our physical distancing over the past year, you (our volunteers) have shown up in so many ways to help us achieve our mission. When we couldn’t offer in-person programming due to COVID, you showed up to lead virtual discussions and graced our trails with your presence. When winds blew and trees were uprooted, you were here to mourn with us and work to rebuild. As we return to our new “normal,” you have signed up to serve pancakes, mulch trails and lead programs. Through our challenges, we see you and are grateful that you choose to be here no matter the season.

Volunteer Appreciation week is nearly here: April 18-24.

To celebrate our YOU (our volunteers) and all you do, we are inviting you to join us for a mix of in-person and virtual programming specially curated and led by staff and guest speakers. This special free program series will cover a variety of topics from low-waste living to trees and frogs. Please register in advance (find the link in your email inbox or in the volunteer facebook group). Space is limited and masks are required at our in-person gatherings.

“I have volunteered at the Nature Center for decades, so obviously it calls to me! The Nature Center is “my place.” It has everything for volunteers – great people, abundant learning opportunities, variety, and the chance to be a part of nature. When I spend time there I don’t just help in my community, I have a great time. I can’t imagine a week without my fix.”
– Mary Kopecky, Volunteer & Artist in Residence
