Volunteering

Volunteers make Woldumar's mission possible.


Woldumar Nature Center is a self-funded 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!
