Riveredge Nature Center is here thanks to the hard work of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of volunteers. They are involved in all aspects of the activities  and are critical to the achievement of our mission. We understand that no two volunteers are alike. Some can help a little, some a lot. Some have weekends available, some weekdays. Some want to do the “grunt” work on the land and others are more comfortable planning and organizing. With that in mind, we’d like to learn more about you and your interests.

Here’s how . . .

Limit of 14 people at a time to ensure a quality experience. See our corporate opportunities page for more great options for your company to connect with Riveredge!
  • Projects are also available for groups and Eagle Scouts.  We’ll help design a volunteer opportunity that you’ll love and will help out Riveredge at the same time!  Contact Pat Fox-Schindler, at 262-375-2715.
  • Every year, we have a one-day work-a-thon at Riveredge in April near Earth Day – we call it a “work and learn” day as we always include some fun programs for all and a wonderful lunch for all our volunteers that day.  There’s lots of projects to choose from that are good for the entire family. Check out our calendar of events for this year’s date and time.
