From its inception, Baltimore Woods has been supported by the efforts of talented and hardworking volunteers. Here at The Woods, we offer many opportunities to take an active role in environmental education and stewardship.
Each season offers different opportunities, and volunteers are needed to help with an array of projects, including trail, garden, and facilities maintenance, reception and office projects, event committee work, marketing and photography projects, food preparation, baking, snow shoveling, and lawn mowing. If community involvement is one of your New Year’s resolutions, becoming a volunteer at Baltimore Woods may be the perfect fit for you!
Our Board of Directors and our major fundraisers are volunteer-led and supported. Corporate volunteers and interns contribute to the success of delivering Nature in the City in Syracuse City classrooms. There is even a crew of teen volunteers that helps to make summer camp a special experience for the next generation of campers! Recently, volunteer talent and effort completed the building of our pole barn and allowed for considerable progress on long dreamed for improvements to the nature play area, our iconic log cabin, and progress toward the re-opening of the Griffith’s Trail. Are you a retired nurse or medical
professional? Consider volunteering in the summer months as a summer camp Health Director. Love science education? Become a Nature in the City volunteer! Fill out a volunteer application today and tell us how you want to get involved.
We’ll be reaching out to our community of volunteers throughout 2019 to help us with the roll out of our strategic plan and continued growth of our organization. Watch for more details as the New Year unfolds, and thank you to all the volunteers who make our mission possible everyday!
