Severson Dells has many valuable volunteers who help with the educational school programs, family Science Saturday events, tend to our butterfly garden, host and hostess on weekends, maintain our library, keep our fish happy and so much more!
Volunteers are involved in many different activities, limited only by enthusiasm, interest and available time. We realize that each volunteer is unique and therefore provide many opportunities where their contributions can be recognized.
Volunteers’ ages range from youth to senior citizens, and they provide thousands of hours of service per year. To all the volunteers: THANK YOU! We couldn’t do it without you!
