LTWC relies on the generous time and support of its volunteers. In addition to caring for wildlife, our volunteers help keep our organization running. Read on to learn how you can help!

Care for Wildlife

LTWC wildlife volunteers help feed, care for, transport and release the wild birds and animals that LTWC receives. Before working with directly with wildlife, volunteers must first complete our annual two-day training seminar. The seminar teaches wildlife diets, feeding techniques, housing, first aid, capture and transportation, anatomy and examination, and more — all the training volunteers need to help care for the birds and animals at LTWC.

The two-day seminar is typically held in May, and registration usually opens February 1.

Lend a Hand

Support volunteers help LTWC in countless ways. They make our fundraisers possible. They help us prepare animal enclosures for our peak season each spring, then help us winterize them again in the fall. They assist with everything from heavy-lifting to stamp-licking.

We will be needing support volunteers more than ever when we transition to our new home. 

If you can lend a hand, please contact us.
