Volunteering at Wildwoods is challenging and rewarding. Volunteers can help with a wide range of activities from animal care to data entry. While we are always accepting applications, most activities are seasonal. We’re busiest in the spring when babies are being born, in the summer when juveniles are growing up and testing their boundaries, and in the early fall when migration begins and animals are out gathering as much food as they can to sustain themselves through winter. We typically begin calling on volunteers to begin their season around mid- to late-May and you will probably end your season with us around early- to mid-October. Those who apply late in the season or over the winter may not be called on until the following spring.

There are four steps to begin volunteering with Wildwoods:

  1. Read volunteer position descriptions to find a good fit for you
  2. Attend an Orientation OR view the Online Orientation video
  3. Complete an Application and sign a Release
  4. Participate in Continuing Education
