How to Help

Paradise cannot be built in a day

Maintaining and expanding SSWC takes a tremendous amount of work. There is concrete to be poured, buildings to be painted, grass to be mowed, plants to be watered, crafts and baked goods to be made for fundraising events, tours to be guided …

You get the idea

Serenity Springs Wildlife Center truly appreciates all of the people who choose to spend some of their free time helping us keep the facility a safe, happy home for our residents. If you would like to be added to our group of outstanding, talented volunteers, we want to meet you!


Be prepared to complete the following requirements prior to orientation:

  • $50 Background Check due at Orientation

Once you are a volunteer, we ask you assist with at least 15 guided tours and become certified to host tours before supporting other special projects. We also ask that you commit to volunteer at the facility a minimum of once a month for 8 hours to remain active.

Our next volunteer orientation will be held date TBD in the Education Center at SSWC. If you would like to attend, please email our Volunteer Coordinator for details.
