Wolf Park’s mission stems from a commitment to education, conservation, and research that focuses on animals and their importance to the natural environment.  A volunteer works alongside Wolf Park Staff Members to help achieve that mission everyday through a variety of ways.  We strive to match your passion with the needs of the park so that together we can work hard to be a good member of the local community as well as serve our visitors who come from around the world.  Many of the skills learned at Wolf Park transfer to other areas of life (i.e., public speaking, customer service) and can provide you with some real world experience.  Take a look at the information below and check out our website at: www.wolfpark.org/volunteer to learn more about the Wolf Park Volunteer Program!
