Volunteer at the Kalamazoo Nature Center
We need hundreds of volunteers and several interns every year to continue providing high quality opportunities for our members and visitors. Volunteer positions and internships at KNC are intended to be mutually beneficial: we further our mission of connecting people with nature and enjoy the benefits of your hard work and positive energy, and you receive education and experiences in a professional, natural setting, working closely with our world-class staff.
Current volunteer opportunity:
Farm Animal Care: We have a sweet old pony named Lacy, 5 goats, and 27 chickens. Volunteers are responsible for feeding, changing water, spot cleaning, and grooming of our farm animals. Available shifts: Friday afternoon, Saturday morning, Sunday morning, Sunday afternoon, and Monday afternoon. Afternoon shifts are from 4-6 pm, morning shifts are from 9-11 am. Training is provided but experience with farm animals is a plus! If interested please contact Angelia Lane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
