Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer! Volunteers give the most valuable gift: time. The valuable services our volunteers provide help Georgia’s wildlife in more ways than one!

Our volunteers get a chance to:

  • Work with wildlife like bats, turtles, songbirds, shorebirds and amphibians
  • Teach the next generation about stewardship, ethics and safety
  • Maintain access to Georgia’s wild places
  • Help with activities at outdoor events, like face painting, fishing stations and archery

Volunteer IncentivesNew! Incentive Recognition Program

For each 50 hours of volunteer service, a volunteer will receive a choice of incentive items recognizing and thanking them for their service. The new hour-tracking system (see next article) will send an email to a volunteer reaching the 50-hour level asking what incentive gift they want for their service.

It is easy to get to 50 hours of service! Come out and help with a clean-up day, kid’s fishing event, help plant flowers, or help with a special project with bats or birds.  We have many opportunities suited for your specific talents. So, what’s next? Sign up to become and volunteer and let the fun begin.
