Interested in volunteering?

Would you like to expand your knowledge about plants & animals, gardening, and the outdoors?

Do you have an appreciation for the natural world?

 Do you want to see your children outside enjoying nature?

Volunteers are an integral part of the family, and many of the programs and events would not be possible without their generous support. Throughout the year, over 200 of volunteers spend time serving on advisory boards, assisting with family events, participating in the construction of various projects, and taking care of our dozens of animal ambassadors. Many volunteer opportunities are dependent on the season. Be sure to check back throughout the year!

Share your enthusiasm and passion for Nature with like-minded people at the Environmental Learning Centers of Connecticut.

Accepting Volunteers ages 14 and Up.

Individuals, groups, and businesses are welcome to reach out!
