Volunteers are at the heart of the Center

Volunteers make an irreplaceable contribution to The Wild Center. They connect the whole Wild Center community together.

Volunteers experience the excitement of involvement as the Center helps people see the world around them in new ways.

As a volunteer, we work to find opportunities that match your interests and skills. Take a look at the available opportunities on this page.

If you are 14 years of age or older and would like to investigate areas of interest for current or future volunteer activity, please email us.
