Youth Volunteer Opportunities
Many youth programs, such as Boy and Girl Scouts, Jr. Bass Busters, and school nature clubs, teach valuable lessons in the importance of caring for our natural resources. GWF welcomes the chance to come alongside these local organizations and give young men and women opportunities to put conservation principles to good use.
Some of the most visible work at the Georgia Wildlife Federation has been accomplished by our youth volunteers. Example projects include:
- building and installing various bird boxes.
- constructing benches and tables for classrooms.
- constructing and improving hardscapes in GWF wildlife habitat gardens.
- clearing and maintaining hiking trails.
- adopting trails and waterways for regular cleaning.
- constructing educational kiosks.
- removing invasive species, such as privet, from wetlands and trails.
Youth volunteers projects are available in Newton and Gwinnett counties, and are assigned based on current GWF programs and the needs of the individual or group. ALL YOUTH VOLUNTEERS, whether volunteering with a local group or as an individual, MUST BE SUPERVISED AND ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT.
