The Oak Grove Nature Center utilizes volunteers to provide
educational programs to the community and assist in development and maintenance
of the Center and Gardens.
Docents (a Greek word meaning teacher or instructor) are currently needed to
provide visitor assistance on weekends and to lead tours for school children
during the week. Other groups may also request tours that can occur during the
week or on weekends. If you enjoy learning about nature and sharing that
knowledge with others, please consider joining our docent group, the Oak Grove
Also, volunteers are needed to help with care of the Native Plant Garden. The
assorted tasks include weeding, pruning, planting, watering and general cleanup.
If your interests lay in this direction please consider joining our Native
Plants chairperson, Martha Mallery, in caring for the garden. She may be
contacted at (209) 477-3966.
