Volunteer Work Day

May 21, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Volunteer Work Day

Enjoy a summer day and nice lunch at the Audubon Center of the North Woods – in exchange for some volunteer help on a variety of service projects on the Center’s grounds and buildings.

Ages 12 years and up only please (children must be accompanied by an adult/parent)

Includes lunch.
Lakeside trail at ACNWService projects you’ll be helping on may include weeding, invasive species removal, painting, beautification of Center grounds, fixing fences, general organizing, etc.  Upon arrival, you’ll be able to choose from the list of various ‘chores’ and we’ll assign work crews and shifts.

After your day of service is complete, we invite you to enjoy hiking on our 7 miles of trails, get out on beautiful Grindstone Lake in a canoe, go swimming or fishing, or just sit back and soak up the nature here at the Center.

Rain garden volunteers

The nitty gritty:

Arrive by 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 21 – there will be a brief welcome and orientation, as well as task assignments, then work teams will head out for the morning’s tasks (9:00-noon), take break for lunch at noon, then regroup after lunch for another round of afternoon tasks (1-4). No dinner will be served, but you are free to stay longer that afternoon and enjoy the Center some more if desired – canoes will be available.


Bring old clothes (or coverups) that you don’t mind getting dirty (or even paint splattered), including long pants and sturdy shoes (required) and water bottles, as well as appropriate clothing for outside weather conditions (work will go on rain or shine). We can supply work gloves or feel free to bring your own.


Space is limited!
