Effective August 11, 2021, masks are required in all City of Asheville buildings.
As a park within the City of Asheville, the WNC Nature Center will require masks for visitors ages five and older in all indoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status.
Next time you visit the WNC Nature Center, look for the people in the green shirts! These special individuals are Nature Center volunteers.
Serving more than 10,000 hours a year, our team of volunteers can be found prepping meals in the animal kitchen, building bookshelves, tabling at events, pouring drinks at fundraisers, assisting the Membership Office, and kidding around with the goats in the barnyard!
Our Volunteer Coordinator and Animal Care Staff are committed to helping volunteers succeed by providing the tools, resources and training. And we’ll make sure you have fun along the way!
Volunteers must be 18 or older.
To become a volunteer:
