Winter has arrived!

Yampatika volunteers are currently along on all of our public programs! A huge thank you to each volunteer donating their valuable time to support our educational programs on snowshoes or skis!

What does it look like to be a volunteer with Yampatika? Volunteer for one program a week or one program a month—we appreciate whatever time you can offer!

  • Support the Naturalist leading a program by:
    • Arrive 15 minutes prior to program start to help the Naturalist meet participants
    • Greet participants with a smile and help the Naturalist hand out or collect forms
    • Help participants with their snowshoes or other gear
    • Be willing to walk or ski at the back of the group and ensure the group stays together, be friendly and encouraging
  • Lastly, we encourage you to learn and enjoy the outdoors!
