Our events and programs could not take place without the help of our amazing volunteers. We have a variety of opportunities for volunteers for our public events, educational programs, and behind-the-scenes projects. So whatever your interests and talents, we would love to give you a chance to utilize them. Contact our director if you would like to know more about how you can help make a difference at HNC.

Material Donations
We go through a lot of supplies to fulfill our mission of promoting environmental awareness and stewardship. Please contact us to arrange a drop-off if you have natural or craft items you would like to donate.
