Yampatika seeks volunteers for winter programs

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Yampatika is seeking volunteers to help support naturalists leading winter environmental education programs. Volunteers help with snowshoe programs, walking tours and kids camps. They do not lead programs but rather provide support, so no experience or environmental education credentials are required.

“We are excited to welcome new people into our volunteer program as well as connect with past volunteers who already know about Yampatika,” Kellie Gorman, program director with Yampatika, was quoted as saying in a news release. “We are seeking volunteers to help with one program a week or one program a month — we appreciate whatever time they can offer.

Volunteers typically support the naturalist leading a program by:

  • Greeting and talking to participants by being friendly and encouraging
  • Staying at the back of the group to ensure the group stays together
  • Learning about and enjoying the outdoors
  • Taking photos to share on social media after the program

To learn more or sign up for volunteer orientations on Dec. 3 or 5, visit Yampatika.org/get-involved/volunteer/.
