We welcome volunteers in our program. We are mindful that a volunteer is devoting considerable time and energy to the program. To ensure that the experience is positive for the volunteer, and a good fit for the program, we have an interview and screening process for all potential volunteers. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a volunteer at Terra Nova Nature School.
