Volunteer at Ballard Nature Center
Volunteers are essential to the Ballard Nature Center. Volunteers host the visitor center on weekends, build foot bridges & benches, maintain trails, conduct yard work, and help with programs and special projects. Without our volunteers, the Ballard Nature Center would not have grown into what we are today! We would love to help you find a way to share your time and talent with us!
Ballard Nature Center’s educators are willing to collaborate with youth group leaders and school teachers to develop service-learning projects that help youth develop civic-responsibility.
