Connecting Families
with Nature

We teach environmental education with hands-on experience

Founded in 1991, Eden Mill Nature Committee, Inc. is a non-profit volunteer run organization that creates and supports educational and environmental programs and partnerships for our surrounding communities.

Our mission is “To provide the opportunity for all people to develop a greater appreciation and awareness of the natural and historical resources of the area by encouraging the utilization of the facilities and programs to be established at Eden Mill.”

Volunteering at Eden Mill

Volunteering at Eden Mill Nature Center’s 117 acres is so relaxing and rewarding. You will meet and work alongside with adults, teens, children and senior citizens. Everyone is welcome!

Whether you volunteer 1 hour or 50 hours per week, it is very much appreciated!

Volunteering is not about how many hours you log in per month. It is the vision of our future, and how we will preserve it for generations to come.

Come join us, you will not be disappointed!
