This April, please consider volunteering at the CHNEP Outreach Booth at the Wild About Nature Festival in Sarasota as well as the Earth Day Conservation Carnival in Fort Myers!

To fuel our many outreach initiatives, CHNEP aims to participate in one community event each month, in hopes of visiting every county we service throughout the year. We are hoping to find volunteers to help host fun, educational activities at the Wild About Nature Festival and Ding Darling Conservation Carnival. Volunteer duties at community outreach events include but are not limited to: facilitating a fun craft or art project, leading educational games, and teaching aspects of our Kid's Fishing Clinic (knot tying, fish measuring, casting, etc.).
