We need your help

April 2, 2021

The weeds around our wildlife enclosures are growing faster than we can pick. We are reaching out to ask our community to help clearing out the weeds growing on the trails through out Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue.

This is an unique opportunity to volunteer at Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue and spend quality time outdoors in our Wildlife Exhibit or our Wildlife Rehabilitation Community. Both areas are located in a eucalyptus grove filled with singing songbirds. Though the work can be hard, it can be quite therapeutic and a great way to spend a day in nature, giving back to wildlife.

We are looking to host multiple weeding volunteer groups over the next few weeks. We need hard workers, over the age of 18. All volunteers must be comfortable bending, pulling weeds and navigating the steep incline on which our center is located. All groups will be socially distanced and outdoors. After your volunteer shift, you will receive a supporter card to attend one of our Saturday public tours for free.

Volunteer weeding schedule is as follows:

10-10:15 a.m.: Introduction and Orientation

10:15-12: Volunteer weeding

12-12:30 p.m.: Lunch break-bring your own lunch

12:30-2 p.m.: Volunteer weeding and clean up. 

To sign up for a date to Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue, 403 Mecham Rd., Petaluma on Tuesday through Sunday at 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
