Many Volunteer Opportunities available.
The Open Space Visitor Center is launching a new approach to training which we anticipate will engage volunteers more fully into the operation of the facility and the greater Open Space program.
- Greeters: They are our frontline to the public, orienting visitors to the facility, answering phones, and assisting with small clerical tasks.
- Gardens: The success of Traditions Garden, Pollinator Garden, and extended landscaping is due to volunteers. Watering, weeding, compost maintenance, planting, harvesting, and interpretation are among the essential tasks in the garden. No experience is necessary. Please specify if gardening is what you wish to do so that you may begin training right away.
- Education: Education is the primary goal of the OSVC. Development of education materials and guiding tours are of the facility’s greatest education needs.
Additional jobs include design, media outreach, data entry, wetland maintenance, bosque maintenance, and special event support.
The Open Space Visitor Center volunteers are essential to connecting visitors to the value of Open Space. The training program is fun and informative. Participants who attend the full schedule of trainings receive a vest right away, usually earned after a year of volunteering! Space is limited to 15 people. Call to register!
