This position may be ideal for volunteers who would like to contribute to TWC's work but may have a busy schedule and are unable to commit to a regular shift.

- Familiarity and comfort using power tools

- Interest in and respect for the needs of wild animals

- Non-profit volunteer experience an asset

Time Commitment

Volunteers must be able to commit at least 4 hours per week when there are projects on the go, especially from spring-fall. Overall, this role has a great deal of flexibility and shifts are not scheduled on a weekly basis.
