Volunteer at ACES

Have an impact in your community

We can always use an extra pair of hands or the donation of special skills. Whether it is helping out teaching classes with kids and adults, working to maintain the Hallam Lake nature preserve and garden, helping with administrative tasks, or working at Rock Bottom Ranch there is always lots to do at ACES! We greatly value the time and energy our volunteers invest, and in return we work hard to provide an interesting and educational volunteer experience.
