Volunteers make Woldumar's mission possible.

Woldumar Nature Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit environmental education center. Volunteers are a vital component to the regular operation of the organization.

Volunteer opportunities abound at Woldumar Nature Center! We currently need volunteers to assist with day-to-day operations and special events. Please contact Woldumar at (517) 322-0030 and let us know if you are available to help. Together we can make a difference!

There are a broad range of volunteer opportunities in which individuals and groups can participate. Community Service hours can be accomplished within a regularly scheduled program.

Join us for Summer Volunteer Saturdays!

Join us once a month on a Saturday morning from 10am-12pm to work on select projects around Woldumar Nature Center. Projects will include mulching, raking, weeding, and a variety of other tasks that are sure to get your heart pumping and your hands dirty. Coffee, snacks, and good company will be provided.

Please bring work gloves if you have them.

All children must be accompanied by an adult.
