“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”– Margaret Mead

Volunteers (individual and groups) play a pivotal role at the Howell Nature Center. A few hours a week makes a great impact to our organization. More than 150 volunteers donate 25,000 hours of their time every year at the Howell Nature Center — an invaluable service to the many lives we touch daily.

Current areas of opportunity:

Adopt-a-Garden (starting March 2018), Adopt-a-Wildlife Exhibit, Junior Volunteers (age 14+, starting end of June 24th), Special Events, Wild Wonders Wildlife Park Feeder (Tuesday only). Please note you must be 18+ to work with wildlife.
