The Role of Volunteers at Environmental Education Centers in New York State with a Manual on Better Use of Volunteer Resources.
Guzewich, Marsha Scott
This thesis examines the role of the volunteer at New York State environmental education centers. The thesis observes that environmental education centers are generally not well funded and volunteer help is especially important. Results of the study, which utilized questionnaires for directors and staff, and opinionnaires for volunteers include: (1) volunteers performed teaching and trail interpretation most frequently and enjoyed these jobs most; (2) many volunteers were not actively recruited, but sought the centers on their own; (3) most volunteers were female between the ages of 18 and 65; and (4) many staff members felt that volunteers were not thanked enough. Other results are reported. (RE)
