Volunteering at Oracle State Park Center for Environmental Education opens the door to a vast amount of knowledge, awareness, and appreciation for the natural environment. Bring your own knowledge to the mix of experts or learn from on the job training. An annual formal training program starts at the end of January and runs from four to eight weeks.
