​Get Involved!

 

   Kelly Costa, a UNC-Charlotte Political Science major, volunteers her artistic skills at Reedy Creek Nature Center
 
Are you looking for something fun and rewarding to do in your spare time?  Ready to take ownership of your local park? Give something back?


Once you become an official volunteer you can find a park and project that fits you. Reedy Creek, Latta Plantation and McDowell Nature Centers are always looking for responsible, creative and energetic people. Focus areas include animal care, native plant gardening, programming, administration, and litter cleanup.  All necessary equipment and training will be provided. Beyond the nature centers, check with Volunteer Services for opportunities to get involved.

If you are motivated to do something more in depth, consider our M​as​ter Naturalist program. Designed for those with an interest in natural resources, the program offers training and field trips for participants, who then volunteer to pass on their knowledge and passion.

If you are a Scout seeking a service project, please register as a volunteer and then contact ​Volunteer Services (980-314-1045) or your local Nature Center Manager to find an appropriate project need.​

Check out the Charlotte Regional Environmental Network Calendar​ for more local opportunities.
