Thank you for your interest and support for our wonderful wildlife. Volunteering to help wildlife is a meaningful and fun way to contribute to conservation in your community.
Community Science volunteering begins in the spring and extends through the fall. We offer training individually in the field or online through a conferencing solution.
To learn more about the value of Community Science read our blog post about it.
All volunteer activities can be completed in a way that abides by current social distancing protocols and best practices. Many of our activities can be done in the safety of your own home, backyard, as part of your daily routines, independently, or in contained and manageable spaces. We are committed to putting public health and safety first.
Once you register as a volunteer, please check our events calendars for online training opportunities.
