Donate Equipment or Services

Gifts-in-kind of gently-used office, camping and outdoor equipment (kid-sized) are greatly appreciated. We also often need help with printing, accounting, photographic and graphic design services at discounted or reduced cost. Please send an email to to inquire about donations of services or used items. Remember the 3 R's: reduce, recycle, reuse!


If you have an extra day to spare from time to time, our trips require adult chaperones. To join us on a trip, please send an email. We also need help in the office - from assisting with mailings to setting-up outdoor events and programs.

We are always looking for trained naturalist guides to join us on our day trips. If you have environmental education training or are interested in being trained to become a guide, please send an email to
