The Nature Center provides the Pleasantville campus with access to a myriad of natural and cultivated resources like trails, apiaries, horticultural land, ponds and streams. The Nature Center is always in need of volunteers to help maintain its gardens and nature trails, to care for its animals and to help organize its many events.

Pleasantville Organic Garden
Part of the Dyson College Nature Center, the organic garden is an educational project where students, faculty and staff are able to conduct research, experiment and learn about various growing methods while experiencing the joy of nurturing and harvesting fresh vegetables. Being involved in the garden enables participants to appreciate the process of bringing produce from a farm to table while helping to reconnect with natural cycles.
Volunteers of all skill levels are welcome. Interested in volunteering? Contact Nature Center director Angelo Spillo at email@example.com.
Earth Tub Composter
The Earth Tub Composter on the Pleasantville campus helps keep thousands of pounds of food scraps from dining services out of landfills. The high-quality compost that is produced by the composter is discharged into the Pleasantville Organic Garden and is used for student research into the benefits of compost on untreated soil, in addition to reducing the need for additional fertilizer in the garden.
A team of student volunteers maintain the composter throughout the year. Interested in volunteering? Contact Donna Kowal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
