Volunteer Fair with East Central Illinois Master Naturalist Partners

In celebration of the 2022 Master Naturalist Volunteer Graduation, we are hosting an outdoor volunteer fair to mix and mingle with our new Master Naturalists and all of our program partners! This event is for anyone who wants to learn more about volunteering for our environment locally.

Join us on August 18 from 6-7 pm near the organic gardens at Meadowbrook just off Race St in Urbana. You will be able to talk to representatives from Champaign County Forest Preserve District, Champaign Park District Natural AreasUrbana Park District, Vermilion County Conservation District, Grand Prairie Friends, Land Conservation Foundation, Upper Sangamon River Conservancy, the Idea Store, Audubon Society, Allerton Allies, and more. We will also have representatives talking about Extension programs, like Master Naturalist, Master Gardener, and Money Mentors. We will be spread out from the pavilion to the herb garden for a casual atmosphere to ask questions and sign up to volunteer with local organizations.
