Calling all BJNC Volunteers! We are looking for volunteers to assist with our Cross Timbers Forest Preschool class this fall. Volunteering with our Forest Preschool program involves a commitment to assisting with one (or more) classes per week. Volunteers must be able to spend the three-hour session outdoors with the class, assisting with tasks such as refilling water bottles, passing out snack, and rearing the lines on hikes. In addition, if you have a background in natural/environmental sciences and wish to add your knowledge to the mini lessons outdoors, that is a plus (but by no means a requirement)!

Contact us at admin@bjnc.org, by phone at 817-491-6333 or simply fill out a volunteer application at the bottom of this link to express your interest: http://bjnc.org/get-involved/volunteer/
