Calling All Volunteers & Guides!


Hosts

Hike desk, exhibit area and trail hosts are needed. Responsibilities include: greeting visitors at the center and on the trails; providing general information, guidance and trail maps; assisting visitors with hands on educational exhibits. Hosts are primarily needed on Saturdays and Sundays.


The Shoppe in the Forest

Sharon Bohlmann and JoAnn Trainer would like to invite you to join the Volunteers in the beautiful Shoppe in the Forest. It is a fine place to spend some time and help some people find a trinket for themselves or a gift for a loved one. It's a good opportunity to learn more about our Sanctuary, and to encourage our Visitors also. Great conversations take place in and around the Shoppe and Science Hall. Visitors gather and chat, hover and discover! So come, join the little Shoppe in the Forest! Click here for more information.

The Enchanted Forest gift Shoppe invites volunteers.

Gift Shoppe Help Wanted

For the past 10 years the Shoppe in the Enchanted Forest has provided visitors with reminders of their visit. Proceeds from sales go toward educational programs in the forest provided by both staff and volunteers. The Shoppe carries educational games for children of all ages, books for nature lovers, gifts for that special someone, t-shirts that spell out your love of the forest and unusual treasures for travelers passing through.

The present shopkeeper is now 10 years older than when she took on this venture and needs help. Putting price stickers on merchandise when it arrives in the forest and placing it on the shelves is all that's needed and a great way to help support your sanctuary.

Call us and we'll be glad to talk with you.
This is YOUR forest, let's always keep it enchanted.
321-264-5185


Volunteer Gardening

Volunteers can join Gardeners to care for the Forest's butterfly gardens for upkeep and to "deadhead" (remove dead flower heads from a plant) blooms so more energy goes to the next flowers. The spent blooms are collected for next year's seeding.

If interested, please contact Suzanne Meyers at meyermenagerie at cfl.rr.com for the next workday.

Thanks for all your hard work...the gardens show how much you care!
