Corporate Volunteer Events
The Stamford Museum & Nature Center (SM&NC) is grateful for the continued support of area corporations who make time for their employees to contribute to our work and make a difference in our community. Corporate volunteer groups participate in activities such as planting trees, creating flower beds and other landscaping projects; painting; installing fences and other small building projects; invasive plant removal; grounds clean up, and more.
SM&NC requests a donation from every corporation for participation in our volunteer program. Funds not only provide necessary supplies and tools for each event, but also cover the costs associated with SM&NC staff to plan, host and facilitate any on-site volunteer activity.
Internships are available for college and graduate level students during the spring, summer and fall semesters in the areas of environmental education, exhibits & collections, media relations & marketing, and farm/large animal care. Internships are generally 10 - 20 hours per week for 8 weeks and are unpaid, but college credit may be arranged.
For more information about all volunteer/intern programs, contact Cathryn Oulighan, Volunteer & Community Relations Manager, at 203-977-6530 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
