To provide opportunities for families and individuals to participate in and support fun and educational activities, we offer a membership program. Membership provides the Nature Center with much needed financial support for staffing, the facilities, educational programs and public events. All membership levels include discounted admission to most nature center events, a subscription to our quarterly newsletter, 1 free "Saturday Snowshoe" per calendar year, 15% discount on locally make Maple Syrup, a "family" visit with our animal ambassadors, and reciprocal benefits from other environmental and educational institutions.

Monetary Donations

Please consider supporting your nature center with a monetary donation.  There are two ways to donate:

1. Electronically through the Rochester Area Community Foundation at this link

2. We can accept personal checks, cash and money orders.  Checks can be made out to "Helmer Nature Center" and sent to our 154 Pinegrove Ave., Rochester, NY 14617.  Thank you!


Our events and programs could not take place without the help of our amazing volunteers. We have a variety of opportunities for volunteers for our public events, educational programs, and behind-the-scenes projects. So whatever your interests and talents, we would love to give you a chance to utilize them. Contact our director, Karen Mazzola, if you would like to know more about how you can help make a difference at HNC.

Material Donations

We go through a lot of supplies to fulfill our mission of promoting environmental awareness and stewardship. Please contact us to arrange a drop-off if you have natural or craft items you would like to donate.
