Volunteers are the Backbone of Our Organization

The Ansonia Nature and Recreation Center welcomes new volunteers who are willing to help with environmental education, animal care, birthday parties, trail maintenance, mailings, special events, and more!  Volunteers are an essential part of the Nature Center.  We work with students from many different schools, helping them to meet their required volunteer hours or to develop their SAE projects. We also provide internship experience for those seeking a college degree. Whether you are a student in high school, or a retired resident of our community, whatever your interest or availability, we offer a variety of exciting opportunities throughout the year. Please note: Individuals under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult while preforming their volunteer hours unless they are enrolled in the Junior Rangers program. More information about the Junior Rangers program can be found here! Please contact us to learn how you can get involved at 203 736-1053 and fill out a volunteer form.

We also welcome organizations looking to help support their community through volunteer work! Email us at or give us a call at (203) 736-1053. We have many on-going projects and would be happy to have your support!
