2013 – Volunteer Program
Want to help us save B.C. wildlife?
You are invited to join our Volunteer Team. Everyone, especially students over 16, who is interested in helping us with our wildlife conservation work, and have regular hours/days every month to spare, are invited to download and fill-in our Volunteer Application Form, and send it in to us for review.
We especially need help with daily food preparation for our animals and birds. Each specie needs a diet of special fresh foods to be prepared every day.
Any and all of your trade skills would come in handy here at Mountain View. There’s always something to repair, or a new birdbox or facility need constructing, or grass always needs to be cut! We have many buildings and over 300 acres to maintain here.
Your help is welcome!
Thank you for applying but only those most suited will be contacted.
