Enjoy learning about and teaching others about nature? Looking for a fun and educational way to meet like minded people? Consider becoming a volunteer with Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center at Cedar Point Park, 2300 Placida Road in Englewood.
Office volunteers work shifts from either 8:30 am to noon or noon to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday. Volunteers can work one shift per week or just a shift a month. Duties include answering the phone, taking messages, scheduling programs, greeting the public and answering questions.
From October through April, volunteers are need as Trail Guides to lead guided nature walks through several local Charlotte County properties. These are usually from 9:00 am to 11:00 am on various days of the week. If interested, a training session will be scheduled. You will learn some plants, animals and interpretive techniques that may help you lead these “walks in the woods”.
