Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education

Volunteers are valued at Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education. Our volunteers are an extension of the eyes, ears, hands, energy, and creativity of the staff. Volunteer assistance and independent activities allow PCWE to broaden the scope of educational opportunities we offer.

  • Assignments: All volunteer assignments require a minimum commitment of 12 hours per year. Volunteers are most active when visitation is high in spring, summer and early fall. Most assignments are on hiatus from November through March.
  • Uniforms: A uniform shirt and hat are provided. Please wear your volunteer shirt when on duty. Beige or khaki shorts or pants and closed toed or hiking boots complete the uniform. Each volunteer represents the Center to our visitors and should appear neat and clean. Your appearance allows you to be recognized as a staff person and contributes to the overall impression that our visitors receive.
  • Training: PCWE staff will provide volunteer orientation and training. In-service training opportunities are available year-round on a wide variety of topics. These include special programs held at the center and at other facilities in the area that are consistent with the goals and programs of PCWE.
