Share Your Nature Appreciation

Supporting the connection between community and nature is extremely vital, as future generations are at risk of losing touch with the natural world. Dodge volunteers foster nature connections and experiences by sharing their talents, ideas, and diversity of perspectives. You must have a volunteer application on file with the nature center before volunteering.
