Events, programs and even daily operations are enriched by the many volunteers who support Indian Creek Nature Center. By sharing their time, talent and enthusiasm, for one day, a special event or on a regular basis, all their efforts help the nature center shine!
Nature Center programming is not complete without volunteers, enthusiastic students and field trips! The big yellow buses come throughout the year bringing students to explore the woods, prairie and ponds! We need Teacher Naturalists to lead elementary students on visits to the Nature Center as part of their science curriculum. You do NOT need to be a teacher! Training provided.
If you are interested in volunteering as a Teacher Naturalist, please call Jan Aiels at the Nature Center at 319-362-0664 for more information or to sign up for training.
