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.
NOTE: Animal Care volunteer recruitment is February 15 – September 15. Applications received after September 15 will be added to our waitlist for the next busy season.
We require that animal care volunteers commit to one shift per week.
Convenient location, flexible hours and great opportunities abound at our retail store in Central Boulder.
We are looking for energetic, outgoing volunteers to represent and support our mission at the rehabilitation center. The stores offer a variety of tasks for a variety of talents.
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!
