We believe that environmental awareness and caring for the natural world should be crucial components of youth education, and we hope to make a difference by improving the environment one child at a time. 

 

Join our Environmental Education team as a Volunteer! 

Looking for a rewarding way to share your passion for the environment? The Ecology Center is looking for volunteer Eco-Educators to help present Environmental Education School Programs. 

Eco-Education Volunteers will receive: 

  • Opportunity to have fun while presenting Ecology Center Programs to K-8 students in the Ann Arbor area. 
  • Ongoing Training - no experience required
  • Continuing Education opportunities for volunteers, including environmental programs, tours, and presentations. 
  • Opportunity to work with others that share an interest in sustainability education. 

Our organization will be able to expand environmental education in schools with the support of caring and giving people like you. Together we can do big things! For more information, contact Mackenzie Munro at 734-369-9277 or email
