Volunteering with us

Let us find the perfect fit for your skills, interests, and talents

 Volunteer Possibilities at PRAC

We are a very small staff with an abundance of projects, programs, and possibilities. We need YOUR talents, time, energy, enthusiasm, and skill to make the Center a thriving place to enjoy and learn. 

Reception Desk, Hidden Heron Gift Shop, and Administrative Help

We need your help for any of the following shifts: Wednesday to Friday mornings from 9 a.m.  to noon., Tuesday to Friday afternoons from noon to 3 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Front desk Greeter Volunteers help us by answering the phone, greeting visitors, taking admissions, assisting with the store, and other administrative duties. This is a critical need for us! We prefer to have folks that can consistently (once a week or once every other week) commit to a shift. We provide training and orientation, and staff will always be present in the building.

This is our greatest need! 

Education and Outreach 

Do you enjoy working with the public and teaching students of all ages, from toddlers to senior citizens? We have a variety of projects in need of education help and support- some require direct teaching and some are assistant teaching roles. We have many opportunities for volunteers to get involved this school year, please contact us today!

Landscapes, Gardens, and Outdoor Docents

If you are interested in gardening (including weeding, removal of invasive species, and other garden maintenance tasks); we have several areas that are in need of volunteers. 

Our Children's Nature Play Garden needs a once-weekly visit to tidy up the garden beds, rake up sticks and debris, and keep the water feature clean. This may include some planting and weeding some weeds!

Our Children's Vegetable Garden needs a once-weekly visit to assist with planning, planting, watering, weeding, and harvesting.  

Are you interested in volunteering in any of the areas listed above? Please contact us at or 228.475.0825  to set up an orientation and discuss how we can connect your skills and interests to our volunteer needs!
