Do you love wolves? Would you like to help educate people of all ages about this important and misunderstood animal? Volunteer this year with WolfWays! We have science-based wolf education opportunities tabling at the Oregon Zoo’s Education Center. You would work with others to interact with zoo visitors with fun games, activities and conversations about wolves. You would work with an experienced volunteer - so no prior experience is necessary. Help to promote public understanding of wolves. Come join the fun!

WolfWays is a group of dedicated volunteers who love to bring science based wolf education to as many as we can. Having only returned to Oregon's landscape in 2008, wolves are an important animal to learn about. Since our founding in April of 2014, we have reached over 8000 young people! We bring wolves into the lives of adults as well.

WolfWays is co-sponsored by Wolf Haven International, a sanctuary for captive bred wolves in Tenino, Washington and Oregon Wild, a conservation organization in Portland that, among many causes, works to protect Oregon's wolves.

Mission Statement

Oregon Wild works to protect and restore Oregon’s wildlands, wildlife and waters as an enduring legacy for all Oregonians.

Description

Founded in 1974, Oregon Wild (formerly the Oregon Natural Resources Council or ONRC) has been instrumental in securing permanent legislative protection for some of Oregon’s most precious landscapes, including nearly 1.7 million acres of Wilderness, 95,000 acres of forests in Bull Run/Little Sandy watersheds (to safeguard the quality of Portland's water supply) and almost 1,800 miles of Wild and Scenic Rivers. As a leader of the national grassroots charge for conservation of roadless areas in our national forests, Oregon Wild helped secure administrative protections for more than 58 million acres of spectacular roadless areas across the country.

Our wilderness, old-growth forest and clean rivers/watersheds programs protect pristine drinking water, unparalleled recreation opportunities and fish and wildlife habitat across Oregon. With a staff of 13, including regional coordinators, Oregon Wild’s strength is its active grassroots citizen network. Through the power of 4,000 members, over 7,000 e-mail activists and dozens of active volunteers, Oregon Wild works to maintain environmental laws, while building broad community support for our campaigns.
