Volunteer

Students canoeing Experience the fun of giving back to your community, volunteer at UNF's Wildlife Sanctuary & Eco-Adventure Program.

 

There are many different opportunities at UNF's Wildlife Sanctuary to share your knowledge and skills. We are always in need of smiling, happy faces to help with our school programs. Most programs are scheduled during weekday mornings (9 a.m.-1 p.m.) throughout the year. Since schedule times do change, flexibility is a plus. We educate not only school children but all people in our community so we can use you even on weekends to help direct guests coming to enjoy our Wildlife Sanctuary.

 

You can also assist with the Eco-Adventure Program which provides UNF students with free camping gear, we host and guide day trip and on-campus workshops.

 

If you have special knowledge in a particular field, or interested in teaching in certain areas let us know. No experience needed, only an appreciation of the wonder and beauty the natural world has to offer!
