Students entering 9th grade and older are welcome to volunteer for summer Heckrodt Conservation Crew (HCC) service camp.  The HCC service camp runs from July 6th – 22nd Tuesday – Thursdays. Students can volunteer for a morning session (9:00-11:30 am) or afternoon session (12:00-2:30 pm) or all day.  Volunteers need to bring a lunch for all day service camp.  There is no minimum hour requirement for service, and volunteers have the flexibility to chose the number of days to volunteer. Youth volunteers must establish a  regular schedule (no walk-in opportunities will be available).

Typical volunteer activities may include trail maintenance, educational support, grounds maintenance, painting, garden maintenance, craft prep, feeding the birds, and possible aquarium cleaning etc. Most volunteer hours are spent outdoors.

Interested youth should submit a completed volunteer application and must register for orientation by June 1st. Limited spots are available for this service camp.  Contact  Andrea Bierbrauer (Volunteer Coordinator) at  andreab@heckrodtnaturecenter.org or  (920) 720-9349 for more information.
