Volunteer Opportunities

The following list includes events that are conducted by our membership.  You are not limited to these activities to acquire your volunteer hours, as there are many needs throughout our community.  If you come across a project you might be interested in tackling, contact Mary Grace Lopez at mgracelpz43@gmail.com to ensure that the activity is appropriate for volunteer hours. Remember, all Master Naturalists must report their hours monthly!
