Since 1982, Greenwood Wildlife Rehabilitation Center has been dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. We rely on volunteers to help provide quality care to thousands of wild birds and mammals each year at our facility in Longmont.
Most of our volunteers work directly with the wild animals, while others provide invaluable assistance with many other essential tasks.
Below are the volunteer positions we have available.
Animal care volunteers are responsible for feeding, cleaning, and general care of the wildlife admitted to Greenwood. Specific duties include food preparation, hand feeding baby wildlife, cleaning cages, maintaining a clean hospital environment, refreshing food and water in outdoor enclosures, and other duties as specified by staff supervisors.
We require that animal care volunteers commit to one shift per week.
At our thrift store in Boulder, thrift store attendants assist with sorting donated items, maintaining a clean atmosphere, and assisting customers with purchases.
More experienced volunteers may be asked to assist with window displays and running the cash register.
As a special events volunteer, you will learn behind the scenes logistics of planning fundraising events and potentially volunteer at the events. It is a fun opportunity, and you're directly helping to raise funds for Greenwood and awareness of its mission.
Our Education-Outreach Volunteers visit schools, events, and other organizations to teach ways to coexist with our wildlife neighbors and what to do in case you ever find yourself in a situation with a wild animal.
Kids--want to help wildlife too? Too young to volunteer at Greenwood? There are still plenty of ways you can help the animals!
With today's high gas prices, many people don't want to make the drive to our facility. However, the gas you use to get to Greenwood and perform other volunteer services is tax deductible! Talk to a CPA to find out how.
