VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

A brand new Center for Wildlife means we need more volunteers to help us provide the highest quality care and exceptional visitor experience.

Nature Center Guide

Do you have a passion for local wildlife, and want to empower others to understand and appreciate the ecosystems we live in? Do you enjoy people and like spending time in a learning environment? Our newly created Nature Center Guide role serves as a friendly, informative face for visitors.

 

Medical Clinic Volunteer

The hands-on nature of our Medical Clinic Volunteer role is physically demanding, but also highly rewarding. Clinic volunteers provide important supportive care (including food preparation, cleaning, and habitat maintenance) for over 190 local species. This is a great opportunity to learn more about wildlife rehabilitation. 

Facilities Volunteer

Our facilities have grown tremendously over the years, and our new Center offers many opportunities for hands-on projects, from carpentry to landscaping to mechanics. Facilities Volunteers ensure safety for all of our patients, visitors, volunteers, and staff by helping to maintain the grounds, clinic, and specialized outdoor enclosures. 

Wildlife Hotline & Admissions

The Wildlife Hotline and Admissions Volunteer is a critical member of our clinic team. This role is responsible for assisting the public with situations involving wildlife,   specifically all aspects of incoming and outgoing Wildlife Hotline calls and the initial screening and triage of wildlife patient admissions.

One-Time Opportunities

Our new facility offers the chance for more one-time volunteer opportunities. For groups or solo volunteers looking for a one-time commitment, we offer various work days and projects-based opportunities. (Most opportunities are physical in nature and therefore have age restrictions or adult supervision requirements.)

Internships

The Wildlife Care Internship Program at the Center for Wildlife is a non-paid work and learning experience for individuals interested in wildlife, and in some cases gain college credit. These positions can serve as an exciting pathway into wildlife career opportunities. Visit our Internship page for more information.
