Volunteers are vital

We welcome volunteers who are looking for ways to help Buttonwood Nature Center achieve its mission. Here are some volunteer opportunities to consider:


Help with a community event such as Earth Celebration Day & Festival of Art, Youth Festival, or Jazz Fest (set up, serve food, run an activity, park cars, clean up, etc.).

Help with a fundraiser such as Recycle/Reuse Yard Sale, Chesapeake Bay Supper, or Salamander Scramble (set up, serve food, run an activity, park cars, clean up).

Assist with office duties (mailings, filing, organizing, copying, assembling packets, etc.).

Assist with a workshop or other program (set up, provide extra hands to help participants, clean up).

Help prepare school program materials and props.

Volunteers are needed year round! Our "helping hands" warmed up at a bonfire during The Institute’s first Winter Solstice Festival.
