Become a Volunteer

The strength of the Georgia Wildlife Federation is demonstrated in the tremendous effort and time contributed by our volunteers.  It is through their efforts that GWF continues to grow and spread the conservation message. Volunteers save the Federation thousands of dollars each year by maintaining GWF habitat gardens, donating graphics to the website, and serving as security at special events.
