Why do people volunteer? It is an opportunity to give service to the community, make new friends, and make a difference in the lives of many.
Wehr Nature Center Volunteers have been a driving force since the beginning. Many of the original volunteers helped start the Friends of Wehr in 1980. Today the volunteer program continues to thrive with over 350 individuals providing over 13,500 hours of service for the Center and Friends of Wehr every year.
Volunteering takes many forms, individuals, families, teens, and corporations. They help with educational programs, special events, natural areas management, animal care, gift store, office support and many other areas. Some volunteers come just one time while others come every week. All help is welcome. Volunteers receive recognition at our annual volunteer potluck every November.
