Volunteer Mission Statement

"Waterman Conservation Education Center is a great place to volunteer your time and talents. We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Our volunteers come in a variety of ages, interests, skills, and desires. From families, service groups, seniors and businesses dedicated to helping us achieve our mission of conservation education, outdoor recreation and environmental literacy." You may only have a few hours a week, some time on weekends, or occasionally during the year, we have opportunities to meet your time constraints and interests.

Thank you to all of our hard working Volunteers!

Waterman Center extends a “Thank you” to all of our volunteers who have worked hard to make this a successful year!  We couldn’t do it without each one of you.  Here is a video produced by board member Teri Franzen showing just a glimpse of the activities this past year.
