The Ecology Center depends on our dedicated volunteer community to help us get the job done. There are many ways to get involved!


As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to dig in deep to sustainable living. From helping tend to our beautiful grounds to manning our many events, being a volunteer for The Ecology Center is about community, collaboration, and creation. We’re so grateful for our volunteers and their dedication to making The Ecology Center an abundant space to learn and grow, as well as for your support in sharing our message that simple solutions make big change.
