Become a Volunteer

Like most non-profit nature centers around the country, Briar Bush could not accomplish its goals without the help of dedicated volunteers. Whether you have a lot of time or very little, we would love to find a way for you to make your mark at Briar Bush.

If you are interested in any volunteer opportunities below, please email

Youth (Ages 12-17)

Building/Grounds Maintenance and Bird Club

Adults​ (ages 18+)

There are many volunteer opportunities for adults including leading guided hikes, pulling invasive weeds, organizing archives, and more. Some of our most pressing needs are:

  • Leading hikes for school groups

  • Leading information tables during community events


Families with youth ages 8-11 may volunteer for Buildings/Ground Maintenance and Bird Club.

Animal Care

Both adults and you can volunteer for animal care. Youth must be 16+ years of age to volunteer for animal care on their own. Youth as young as 10 years-old may volunteer with an adult family member.
