How Do I Become A Volunteer?
All volunteers start by attending a Volunteer Orientation Meeting. Volunteer Orientations are held most Saturdays at 10 am. The orientation will introduce you to the Ogden Nature Center and the many ways you can help. We'll also find a good fit for your talents, interests and schedule. Please note that young volunteers must be accompanied by an adult.
