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
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 will send an email to a volunteer reaching the 50-hour level asking what incentive gift they want.
