Skills Based Volunteers#

Each volunteer is assigned a main staff contact who oversees the technical side of the project. 

In the spring, Skills Based Volunteers work independently with assistance from the staff sponsor of the project.

In the fall, a cohort of Skills Based Volunteers will meet monthly (5-6:30 p.m.), the first Wednesday of every month) to learn more about the Natural Areas Department and receive support from the Public Engagement team, in addition to working with their staff contact. They will also give a 10-minute presentation at the end of their project.
