Sandy Bottom Nature Park

Website: {{}}


Hampton's premier park is a 456 acre environmental education and wildlife management facility. Born from borrow pits and garbage dumps, the park is truly a success story of reclamation of our natural resources. From the 10,000 square foot nature center overlooking Sandy Bottom Lake to the elusive creatures that inhabit the wetland marshes, there is something for everyone at the Sandy Bottom Nature Park.


Volunteers are needed for one-time events, as well as regular work as nature center volunteers, park ranger aides, animal caretakers, interpreters and program leaders, and kid's fishing program angler.
