The Raptor Trust is a Non-profit organization dedicated to caring for over 5,000 injured and orphaned native wild birds each year in addition to housing 50 non-releasable hawks, eagles, falcons, and owls as permanent residents at the center and welcoming visitors year round. The Trust also offers educational programs for schools and community groups throughout the region.

As we continue to expand each year we are looking for dedicated, compassionate, reliable volunteers to assist us in our reception office, where hundreds of visitors come to drop off injured and orphaned wild birds each month. Reception volunteers aid in collecting paperwork for newly admitted avian patients, updating records in our computer database, assisting visitors with questions and general directions, and occasionally help in the gift shop or infirmary with light organizational tasks.

Training is provided for all new volunteers and continues throughout your time at The Raptor Trust as you work directly along side our talented staff and dedicated volunteer team. We do ask that volunteers commit to a weekly recurring 4 hour shift.
