Volunteer with us!
If you enjoy the outdoors and sharing your
love of nature with others,
then sign up today to volunteer with Catamount Institute!
Research has shown that most people who take responsibility to care for our natural world have been influenced by others who are enthusiastic and show respect for the environment. Catamount Institute offers environmental education programs to schools, scouts, and other groups interested to help develop young stewards that will take action to make a difference when our planet needs a hand. We are always looking for volunteers who share our interest in caring for the environment and exposing children to the wonders of nature. Volunteer opportunities are available year-round and all volunteers will be provided with training. Together, we can make a difference.
Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer Education Assistant
Volunteer Education Assistants work along with the Catamount Institute staff presenting nature programs and leading hikes through Sondermann Park. We have school groups visiting almost each week in the Fall and Spring/Summer for our 2/3-hour programs.
Our brief training program provides volunteers with all the information and knowledge to get started. No previous wildlife knowledge is required—just an interest in learning more about nature in general and in furthering the Catamount Institute mission of developing ecological stewards through education and adventure. And ‘refresher course’ sessions are provided regularly for all of our volunteers.
