Volunteer Opportunities:
First Thursdays at the WILD Center

Announcing Wild Ones First Thursdays at the WILD Center. In an effort to put our best foot forward to the world, Wild Ones National invites you to help us keep our headquarters looking spiffy– something we can show off to non-native landscaper,s and something of which native landscapers can be proud. With that in mind, we invite you to stop by on the First Thursday of the month and bring along your tools, weed-pulling gloves, and sturdy shoes – and plan to roll up your sleeves to keep the Center looking inviting for humans as well as wildlife. Although you can stop by any time of the day, and any day of the week, if you plan to be here from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the first Thursday of the month, bring a dish to share, and we’ll have potluck around 6 p.m., and share some social time together. Networking is always allowed. Call for more information 877-394-945.
