Nature connection in Gwynns Falls Leakin Park
HIGH SCHOOL VOLUNTEER SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES
BALTIMORE CITY STUDENTS IN ACTION
Every first Saturday of the month, students are invited to earn service hours by working on projects at the nature center. We offer on-going individual projects as well as larger projects for groups. Students can also create their own projects based on service learning objectives set by their school. After service hours are completed, the nature center conducts exit interviews which include individual conversations and time for reflection.
If you are interested in the service opportunities below, please reach out! All of these opportunities are approved by the City Schools Service Learning Office.
