TEAM DNR Introduction


TEAM DNR classroom sceneSince the 1998 pilot program, TEAM has annually recruited and trained volunteers to deliver our ever expanding services to schools around the State.

The TEAM program currently has 40 active volunteers working in public and private schools across the State. In 2013 TEAM provided over 250 programs for over 6,500 students in 70 schools from the Eastern Shore to Western Maryland.

Our volunteers come from different backgrounds, but all have a strong desire to help students understand and care for their natural environment. Their efforts provide an important link between DNR and schools around the state.

See "Volunteer" tabs (right-hand column) for next Training Dates.
