Welcome home!

The Springs Preserve strives to build culture and community as part of our mission. As a volunteer or docent, you're a vital link with our community and an important part of the Springs Preserve story.

We are especially looking for people willing to make long-term commitments to our docent program. Docents are volunteer leaders in a variety of specialty areas who lead tours, educate visitors and help nurture our grounds and programs. In our docent program, we offer rewarding opportunities to partner with biologists, archaeologists and leading experts to educate and engage our community.

For those interested in shorter-term commitments such as one-day group projects or weekend special events, volunteer experiences are available for virtually every interest and experience level.

Whether you're a retiree devoted to giving back to others or a civic-minded student looking to enhance your resume, you can find a place here among our Springs Preserve family.
