Public Volunteers

For individuals or groups that would like to attend an open volunteer event.

This volunteer option is for individuals or groups that would like to help out at an open volunteer event, like Eco-Stewardship Work Days, Farm Work Days, Flower Power Crew and Festivals without becoming a registered Blandford Nature Center volunteer.

Please keep in mind that while a Volunteer Application does not need to be completed, you will still be required to sign a Liability Waiver at these volunteer events. If you are interested in volunteering at any of our smaller, more intimate Community Programs and events, you are required to fill out an application and pass a background check.


Eco-Stewardship Work Days

Eco-Stewardship Work Days focus on habitat restoration, trail maintenance, stream clean-up and removal of invasive species. Education is a key aspect with instruction not only on removal but also on identification of several native Michigan plant species and general ecology.
