VENUS — Are you curious about volunteering in Highlands County? Archbold Biological Station relies on thousands of volunteer hours each year. Many backgrounds and different skills are needed to help Archbold’s science, conservation and outreach goals.
From 2:45 to 4 p.m. Sept. 29, Education Coordinator Dustin Angell will give a presentation on volunteer contributions and how volunteers can join the team.
Snacks are provided and everyone is welcome.
Angell’s talk will give an overview of Archbold Biological Station’s 75-year history and share stories of volunteers contributing to the organization’s success. The audience can learn about the variety of volunteer positions available.
In preparing for the talk, Angell hopes to have an audience with a diverse mix of backgrounds.
“Yes, we need help with public outreach and science field work, but we also need folks with skills in management, maintenance, and mechanics. It takes a lot of people to make a field station work, and volunteers make a big difference in what we can accomplish,” he said.
Archbold Biological Station is an independent, not-for-profit research facility.
