Baltimore Woods Nature Center

Baltimore Woods Nature Center (BWNC) is a premier educational organization that transforms individuals and communities through place-based education by cultivating an abiding love for the natural world, while serving as a model of sensible stewardship. BWNC accomplishes this through teaching and interactive programs that take place at Baltimore Woods headquarters in Marcellus, NY, as well as in urban, suburban, and other rural landscapes of Central New York.

Board volunteer opportunity to serve a 3-year term, January 2018 – December 2020. Board meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 6pm, with breaks during the summer and December. Board members also serve on standing and/or ad hoc committees and are expected to volunteer occasionally at organization fundraisers. Standing committees include Finance, Land Management, Facilities, Marketing, Development (Fundraising) and Human Resources. Individuals with expertise related to these areas and legal expertise are desirable, but we also find individuals with strong problem solving and project management skills as a good fit as board members. Board members are expected to donate annually at a level they are comfortable with and pay for a membership at any level (individual, family, patron, etc.). Board members are also tasked with assisting in identifying sponsors for the Nature in the City program.
