Would you like to lend a helping hand? Are you looking for an opportunity to get involved with The Nature Institute? We would love for you to be a part of TNI and there’s many ways you can help. Click on our volunteer form below if you are interested and we will contact you in the next 3-5 business days.  Thank you!

Events: We are always looking for additional assistance for our events, from the planning stages to the clean-up, and everything in between for events like Earth Day and Enchanted Forest.  

Environmental Education: Several hundred students walk the trails every year at The Nature Institute. We always need help teaching students about nature, creeks, trees, and insects to name a few.  Do you love the outdoors? Nature? Kids? Learning? Having fun? If you answered yes to any of these questions, here is the perfect opportunity to get involved. Retired teachers are perfect for this opportunity! Training opportunity on February 3, 2020 – email eehley@thenatureinstitute.org or fill out form below.

Greenhouse: Volunteers assist TNI staff in cultivating native plants for restoration purposes, seed collecting, and Native Plant Sale events open to the public. Training opportunity on January 30, 2020 – email ewright@thenatureinsitute.org or fill out form below.

Restoration Days: Maybe getting your hands dirty is more your style? Monthly restoration days will be right up your alley. Whether you are assisting to restore the 60-acre Heartland Prairie at Gordon Moore Park, participating in our Bush Honeysuckle Sweeps, or pulling invasive species and clearing the trails in the historic Olin Nature Preserve, TNI has a job for you.

Please let us know which projects you would like to participate in.
