Are you looking for a unique volunteer opportunity? Do you love animals, nature and working outdoors?
Located on 524 acres in Statesville, North Carolina, the Discovery Trail at Rocky Creek is an equine-accessible, multi-dimensional outdoor sensory experience intended to set an example as a best-in-class facility for experiential therapy and learning.
The generosity of volunteers allows us to elevate the care of our facility and animals; and implement, create and grow our educational and therapeutic programs. We are in search of individuals and groups who are interested in volunteering regularly or for full-day outings.
Volunteer activities may include but are not limited to: Trail Work [clean-up, development, blazing] * Trail Guide [when guests and clients are on-site] * Sensory Station and Habitat Development * Gardening * Construction/Repairs and Painting * Hay Production * Horse + Animal Care * Art Installations * Special Events * Community Outreach and Marketing * Promotion and Fundraising * Working with Therapeutic or EFL Clients [*requires additional training]
If you are unable to join us on The Discovery Trail for ongoing or on-site volunteer days, there are several fun and creative projects you and your school, scout, spiritual or business organization can do from home!
Build PlayHives * Create Sensory Bottles, Boxes and Boards * Build Fairy Villages * Build a Bowling Alley * Build our Braille-Birthday Board * Create a Giant Kaleidoscope * Create Painted Barn Quilts * Create an Outdoor Sculpture for an Art Installation
A plaque honoring those who create any of these items will be placed in the station(s); and plans/supplies may be provided by The Discovery Trail.
Contact us at email@example.com for more information!
Volunteers must be at least 13 years of age (unless volunteering with a group). All interested volunteers must complete an application and brief orientation on-site.
