Be a Volunteer

Volunteers are essential members of the Lake Katherine team and we are always looking for dedicated individuals or groups to help with our mission to “connect people with nature.” Whether you’re someone with a passion for nature, a high school or college student hoping to gain new skills, a recent retiree looking for something new, or have a group of people looking to contribute to the community, we have something for almost everyone.

Lake Katherine is not currently accepting applications for new volunteers.  Please check back in the Fall of 2022.

 In order to protect the health and safety of our community, employees, visitors, and their families from COVID-19, Lake Katherine is currently requiring all applicants to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and to provide proof of that status.
