Thank you for your interest in volunteering at WRC!
Darvan Acres is our seasonal outdoor facility in Inver Grove Heights, open from May-September. If you are looking for a position at the Roseville facility, a year-round volunteer opportunity, an option for winter months, or community service hours, please apply for a different position.
As you’ve read on our website, volunteering at WRC is very rewarding but also very precise, hard work. The work you do as a volunteer has a direct impact on the patient’s life. Our goal is to return our patients fully rehabilitated to the wild. They must retain their wild instincts. Because of this, volunteering at WRC is drastically different than working with domestic, farm or zoo animals: The animals cannot become habituated to humans. Before completing this application please be certain that you understand you cannot talk to the animals in our care. You will not be able to pet or cuddle them. This is for their safety and yours.
