Support Hartley


Here is a remarkable fact: unlike most other nature centers, Hartley is not funded by any state, county, or municipal agencies, and therefore operates solely on program fees, memberships, grants and private donations from people like you. That is why we need your help!

Whether your interests lie in office work, stewardship, exhibit design and maintenance, trail building and maintenance, gardening or assisting our teachers, we can use you here. Our volunteers help with a wide variety of one-time and ongoing tasks, and we would be lost without them. Are you looking to donate some of your time to help a very worthy organization? We might be just what you’re looking for.

First step is to fill out the volunteer application. You can mail it in, email it, or better yet, drop it off at Hartley Nature Center so we can meet you!
