Aquarium: Behind the Scenes - Saturdays & Sundays, 2-2:30 p.m. Get a closer look at the 3,500-gallon saltwater aquarium in the nature center's exhibit hall to learn more about the aquarium's inhabitants and observe them feeding. For all ages. $2/person.

Friends of the Anne Kolb Nature Center - First Thursday of the month, 7-9 p.m. The nature center's very active volunteer group has its monthly meetings in the Mangrove Hall.

EcoAction Days - Third Saturday of the month, October-May, 9 a.m.-noon. For ages 13 and up. Volunteers clean up trash, plant native plants, and/or remove non-native invasive plants. Students can arn community service hours for graduation and college scholarships, and others can help improve and preserve the environment. Participants should dress appropriately with long sleeves, long pants, and closed-toe shoes that can get dirty. Participants should also bring gloves, a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, and drinking water. Extra tools such as shovels, rakes, and hand pruners are welcome. Volunteers must fill out an application before participating. 


Volunteers Needed! 
Learn about photography, painting, recycling, plants, and nature as you volunteer to help at our special events. Hike our trails and pick up litter, plant native trees, and/or remove exotic plants. Feeling crafty? Design and create signs, decorations, and games for our upcoming programs. Need community service hours to graduate? We'll customize a program tailored to your interests and schedule.
