Welcome to the Wetlands Park Team (required)

This required training class will be taken once a new volunteer has completed background check and is ready to volunteer.​

This course covers a history of the park and its mission, with a focus on exploring tool​s and techniques for creating a positive and memorable experience for our visitors. Our visitors have a broad range of needs and we will learn about how to identify and meet those needs. Special consideration will be made to addressing challenging visitors or situations.​ We all have a s​pecial connection Wetlands Park and we will learn about ways to connect our visitors to the unique resources of Wetlands Park as well as help them to find the meanings and significance of those resources to their lives. Making connections between visitors and the Park strengthens the community commitment to our Park!  

All volunteers are required to participate in one session of this training.
