Newport Beach Environmental Nature Center Needs Volunteers, Friday June 21st

Stanbridge College REACH invites you to volunteer at the Newport Environmental Nature Center (ENC) on Friday, June 21st from 1:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Dig into fun working with the Center’s grounds keeping team to help weed, plant, maintain the trails, and pick-up litter. Sign up today to keep this 3.5 acre landscape, sanctuary, and classroom of Orange County’s flora and fauna clean and healthy.

The ENC is a place where all ages can walk, pause to smell the scents, observe birds and butterflies, watch the seasons change, and discover nature first hand. For 40 years, the ENC has been shaped and caressed for learning, a retreat from life’s pressures and a place of preservation and instruction. Serving over 18,000 students and thousands of visitors annually, the ENC is recognized as a leader in science and social science education providing opportunities for increasing our community’s knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of the natural world.
