Hickory Corners, Mich. — Volunteers make up an amazing part of the team at the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station. Several trainings will be offered this spring for those interested in volunteering their time and talents with the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary’s Resource Center and tours.
On February 28 and March 10, from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., new and experienced volunteers are invited to learn how to help run the Bird Sanctuary’s Resource Center. During the training, staff will review opening and closing procedures, cash register operation, welcoming visitors and new merchandise.
Those who enjoy the natural world and want to pass that appreciation on should attend the Bird Adaptations Tour Volunteer training on March 22 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Participants should register by March 16.
Volunteer opportunities are available at KBS year-round. If you have questions about volunteering at KBS, please visit us online, or contact Misty Klotz, the KBS Outreach Educator & Volunteer Coordinator, by phone at 269-671-2263 or by email.
Celebrate with us our legacy of conservation as we mark 90 years since W.K. Kellogg donated the lands that now make up KBS to Michigan State University. Our commitment to research, education and outreach stands on the foundation of W.K. Kellogg’s vision for cutting-edge science and learning.
As MSU’s largest off-campus educational complex, we’ve put our land-grant values into practice as we’ve provided the public with examples of science’s crucial role in sustaining natural and managed communities for nearly a hundred years. As we look forward, our students and faculty are working to understand and solve real-world environmental problems for a better tomorrow. To learn more about KBS, visit us online at kbs.msu.edu.
