With the completion of the remodeling for handicap accessibility, the Wild Ones Institute for Learning and Development or WILD Center opened its doors to the public in July 2008. Through the generosity of a couple of very special anonymous Wild Ones members, we are fortunate enough to own the entire property debt free.
Currently we have a staff member on site from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. However, the grounds are accessible at all times.
Rental of the property is available 24/7. Contact
Volunteer Opportunities: First Thursdays. Keeping the grounds around the WILD Center looking spiffy is hard work and a lot of fun. Find out more.
Volunteer efforts are always welcome anytime, however. We have some yard cleanup to be done and invasive species to remove (buckthorn, honeysuckle, wild parsnip, etc.), as well as lots of just plain weeds. We also have gardens which need some TLC from time to time.
And we’ve put together a wish list for tools, equipment, and miscellaneous furnishings we’ll need.
