Volunteer Opportunities

Our 2018-2019 school year is full of exciting volunteer opportunities to create successful programming here at CSG. We are not only relying on volunteers to help with Harvest of the Month, but also looking for talent for building projects, social media outreach, special events, and many other ways to use your talents in support of youth engaging with nature.
