Looking to get outside? Looking to volunteer? Now you can do both!

Spring is here. Did you ever think about volunteering at one of the local nature centers? At this time of year, help is needed to clean up the grounds and prepare the facilities for warm weather. Most facilities welcome individuals, families, students and even schools and youth-based organizations to help them out. So get out your work gloves, your sturdy shoes and go play in the dirt. Here are some places to contact if you want to get outside, do good and feel good – Flat Rock Brook Nature Center in Englewood, Teaneck Creek Conservancy, the Palisades Interstate Park Commission in Alpine, and the Meadowlands Environment Center in Lyndhurst.

For more on volunteering please call Debbie Emery at 201-489-9454, ext. 118.
