Become a Discovery Center Volunteer!
If you enjoy the forest and would like to help visitors learn about our local mountains, then the Discovery Center has a volunteer opportunity for you! You'll be joining over 100 other volunteers who enjoy meeting Discovery Center visitors and helping them get the information they're looking for such as where to hike, camp, picnic, go off roading, etc. Help families and students learn about the forest through our naturalist table, nature walks and school programs. You'll have a chance to visit with people from all over the world. Volunteers are asked to donate 8 hours of their time a month, or more if they want to.
We need volunteers to help with a variety of jobs, including:
Gift Store Assistants
Nature Walk Guides
Weekend activities assistants, such as gold panning, animal tracking and nature crafts
Assist with special event, including concerts and festivals
School and scout program leaders
We teach you everything you'll need to know!
