The Wildlife Science Center is looking for volunteers to assist with our education programs. 25,000+ people come through our doors each year to learn about wolves, wildlife, and science. Volunteers assist with conducting programs including public open hours, school field trips, bonfires, and overnight programs. Programs are on and off-site.

We are looking for volunteers that can commit to being available most Tuesdays and Wednesday from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm to assist with our public open hours. Volunteers share information about WSC's resident wildlife with visitors as they explore the facility, and also help with admissions. Additional volunteer opportunities to help with school groups and other private programs will be based on volunteer availability.

About Wildlife Science Center

Location:

22830 Sunrise Rd NE, Stacy, MN 55079, US

Mission Statement

The mission of WSC is to serve as an educational resource for all ages; by: providing exposure to wild animals and the body of knowledge generated for their conservation;to advance understanding of wild animal biology through long-term, humane scientific studies on captive populations, thus contributing to technical training for wildlife agencies, educational institutions and conservation agencies.

Description

A 501(c)(3) organization, the Wildlife Science Center offers programs focused on education for children and adults alike about the importance of conservation of our natural resources. In addition, we also conduct studies in support of the survival of critically endangered predators, train wildlife professionals from all over the world, and partner with the US Fish and Wildlife Service on the recovery of the Mexican Gray Wolf and the Red Wolf. The Wildlife Science Center is home to many wild animals such as foxes, cougars, owls and other raptors, lynx, bears and the largest resident wolf population in the United States. Many of the resident animals find sanctuary with the WSC as they would be unable to survive in the wild.
