Volunteer!Volunteers are crucial to the Nature Center's operation. There are jobs for every skill level, and as long as you're over 18, you don't need any special qualifications beyond a desire to help. For example, you can get close to nature by helping to plant cordgrass and clear weeds, or you could simply man the reception desk and welcome visitors to the building. Volunteers also lead activities at the SMNC, including the popular Tai-Chi program, kids' storytime, and nature walks. If you have an idea for an activity, the SMNC staff would love to hear it.
