Becoming a Wolf Park volunteer is a great opportunity to learn about wild canids and their place in the world. It is also a way to support wildlife conservation and promote the welfare of animals in human care while giving back to YOUR community.


Wolf Park’s mission stems from a commitment to education, conservation and research that focuses on animals and their importance to the natural environment.  A volunteer works alongside Wolf Park Staff Members to achieve that mission every day through a variety of ways. 

The first step on your journey will be joining our General Volunteer Pool.  We rely on these individuals to help keep the park looking its best, make events happen, and meet a variety of other goals throughout the year.  Each month there will be several tasks that you can come out and choose to participate in based on your schedule and talents.  There’s something for everyone!  

For those of you who want to commit more time and/or specialize the Wolf Park staff will occasionally post specific volunteer job postings for scheduled tasks.  These jobs include: Animal Care, Education/Outreach, and Visitor’s Center Staff.  In order to be eligible for those positions, you must first join the General Volunteer Pool.
