The Environmental Interpretive Center (EIC) has a long, rich tradition of community service and engagement. If you are looking to make an impact on the environment in southeast Michigan, then please consider supporting our educational, research, or conservation initiatives. We offer many opportunities for student service projects, volunteering, and partnerships with civic groups and community agencies.


The Environmental Interpretive Center (EIC) relies on many volunteers to help fulfill and advance its mission to promote environmental awareness, understanding, and sustainability. We recognize and appreciate that each volunteer brings their own set of interests and skills. While most of our volunteer projects require little training, a staff member will always be available to assist with and help coordinate your activities. We will also make every effort to accommodate the days and times that are convenient for your service at the Center.
