Over 200 volunteers support the Seymour Center each year. They lead tours and lessons for school groups, take care of a live animal collection, and support day-to-day operations and education programs. In return, our volunteers get a lifelong learning opportunity and sense of purpose from their commitment to conservation and sustainability.
