Volunteering Opportunities

Westmoreland Sanctuary Volunteer Corps

Westmoreland Sanctuary


Have you ever had an interest in working in nature, the envorinment or with animals? Are you looking for a way to give back to your community while spending time in the great outdoors? Are you looking for a way to fill your community service hours, high school internships, or looking for a fun and exciting way to spend some of your free time? Becoming part of the volunteer corps is a great place to start.

We are looking to put together a regular volunteer corps to help with many projects and programs we have throughout the year.  Give as little or as much time as you can.  Opportunities and internships can be found for middle school, high school and college students as well as all ages of adults and even retirees.  Contact us today and find out how you can become part of Westmoreland today.
