Junior Nature Guides

What are the Junior Nature Guides?

Junior Nature Guides are Closter Nature Center volunteers under the age of 18. They can assist with educational programming with our Naturalist, "Nature" Marc.  They can help improve our Nature Center and its interpretive displays. They can keep an eye on our trails and help keep walking paths clear of branches, overgrowth etc. Whatever your interest may be, we can find a way for you to get involved! We are so grateful for all our Junior Nature Guides and the help they provide!
