Meadowside Nature Center – Volunteers

From greeting the public to caring for the animal ambassadors, Meadowside works with volunteers in almost all areas of our operations. The contributions of each volunteer’s time, energy, and talents are an invaluable asset to the team.

Volunteers can contribute on a long-term or short-term basis. Positions are available throughout the year and are posted to the Montgomery Parks Volunteer webpage.

Long-term Opportunities

These positions fulfill a minimum requirement throughout a defined period of time, whether that is 3 months, 6 months, or a year. They often require training which can be delivered online and in person. Long-term volunteer positions open up throughout the year. Please visit the Montgomery Parks Volunteer page for a list of open positions.

Short-term Opportunities

These positions assist in projects, large events, or other short-term needs. These opportunities usually do not require training to participate. Please see the Montgomery Parks Volunteer website for position postings.  

Special Opportunities – Eagle Scouts

Meadowside maintains a list of needed construction projects that are appropriate for Eagle Scouts. When available, we will post these to the Montgomery Parks Volunteer website for Scouts. If you do not see a project listed, please email Volunteer MNC to ask if any such projects can be made available.

Special Opportunities
Student Service-Learning Hours

A few positions at Meadowside qualify for Student Service Learning (SSL) hours. As an approved SSL host agency, all student opportunities must be preapproved by Montgomery County Public Schools and the Montgomery County Volunteer Center. Only the preapproved options will provide you with SSL hours. Examples may include:

  • Volunteer Camp Counselors
  • Weed Warrior Workdays
  • Special events

Please see the Montgomery Parks Volunteer website for current Student Service-Learning opportunities and frequently asked questions.
