Wildlife Associates (WA) is a local science and environmental education nonprofit that teaches and inspires youth to become future stewards of the planet. WA cares for over 50 non-releasable wild animals in their sanctuary who are the "wild teachers" in their educational programs.

Each year at the end of September, Wildlife Associates has its annual fundraiser on site. To prepare for the event, WA needs help with ongoing maintenance and other projects in and around the sanctuary. These might include painting, landscape work, and more. With each volunteer group who comes to the sanctuary, WA also asks for help creating behavioral enrichment items for the animals. These provide mental stimulation for the animals and helps ensure their happiness and health. As a bonus, WA also makes sure that all volunteers have the opportunity to "meet" some of the animals and learn about environmental stewardship.

All volunteers are strongly encouraged to bring sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, jacket, water, and gloves. Tools and paint will be provided. Volunteers must be 18+.
