Volunteering is a great way to try out research and field activities in field biology and environmental science, and a great way to acquire skills and "out-of-the-classroom" experience to build a strong resume.

This page will be updated as opportunities arise, so check back for new listings.

Natural Areas Management
The Cofrin Center for Biodiversity manages over 1,600 acres across five natural areas located in Brown, Door, and Manitowoc Counties. Volunteers may help with invasive plant removal, restoration projects, and trail maintenance. Contact the Natural Areas Ecologist, Bobbie Webster, or Conservation Biologist, Andrew LaPlant, for more information.
Community Science 

Community science is a way to help to preserve biodiversity by participating in monitoring and other science-based data collection projects. Volunteers work together with scientists and agency resource managers to perform research-related tasks. In some cases no formal training is required, while others expect volunteers to show proficiency in various skills through experience and continuing education coursework or testing. The Cofrin Center provides volunteer opportunities for community scientists - check back later for a list of opportunities.
