We love our volunteers, and we could not do all that we are able to do without them.  There are two main ways to engage as a volunteer:  as docents at our Nature Center and as naturalists for our school programs.  See the links below for more information:

Nature Center Docents: Do you love being outside and also helping others learn and appreciate nature? If you are looking for a way to volunteer for Durango Nature Studies that doesn’t require a lot of time, but focuses on your interests, becoming a Nature Center Docent just might be the thing for you.

Volunteer Naturalists: Volunteering with Durango Nature Studies is a great way to learn hands-on activities that teach kids about nature and science. Volunteer Naturalists learn curriculum to teach all Durango students in grades K through 8, plus many school groups from surrounding areas.  Once completed, you will join countless alumni who are fully qualified to lead nature-based, science field trips for kids at our Nature Center or on snowshoes at Haviland Lake.
