How Kids Can Help

Request a Kids Project!

Greenwood cannot allow youth to volunteer with our wild patients at the Center. Greenwood is also unable to accommodate tours. But that doesn’t mean you can’t help! There are plenty of fun ways for kids to get involved!

Build Nest Boxes: Baby mammals need a cozy place to call home while in our care, and nest boxes make great temporary nests. We provide the construction plans; you provide the materials and build the nest! This is a great woodworking project for crafty kids.

Construct Animal Care Bins and Caging: Caring for thousands of animals a year requires a lot of bins and caging! You can help young birds, waterfowl, and mammals by building temporary homes for our patients. We have several different plans for you to choose from.

Collect Supplies: Check Greenwood’s website for a current wish list of supply needs. Many of these items can be found around the house or at your nearest grocery store, including paper towels, trash bags, copy paper, hand soap, and more! Is your birthday approaching? Instead of
presents, ask your friends and family for supply donations which will be used to provide care for our wild animals.
