If you are looking for something fun to do outside that will make a difference in our local community you may be perfect for an opportunity at the Mohonk Preserve. Each year the preserve counts on a large number of us from the Hudson Valley to donate our time to help visitors to the area learn more about where we live.

The Mohonk Preserve is currently offering Volunteer Orientations for it's various fields and this weekend you can participate in one of these events virtually. It is a great way to determine if it is something you might like to do for the season. This weekend is the Interpretive Guide orientation from 9 AM to 11 AM on Saturday (March13th).

According to the Mohonk Preserves website this type of guide is responsible for interacting with people who visit the preserve through formal and inform activities. In this roll you would meet and greet visitors and help them understand the maps and other displays throughout the preserve.

The orientations will be held over Zoom. If you are interested you should register in advance which you can do by contacting Andy Reynolds, Volunteer Programs Manager at volunteers@mohonkpreserve.org or you can reach him by phone at 845-255-0919, ext. 1269.
