Volunteers make the National Eagle Center experience possible. As a volunteer, you have the opportunity to meet visitors of all ages, share your passion for eagles and the natural world and support our mission of environmental education and stewardship. We offer training in naturalist interpretation and presentation skills, as well as basic eagle care. You’ll learn a lot, and have a great time as part of the National Eagle Center team!
A few reasons to volunteer
A love of eagles, the eagle ambassadors, and the environment.
I love learning something new every day!
I enjoy hanging out with the birds and trying to answer the visitors’ questions keeps my brain active.
Meeting and talking to people from around the world.
As a [retired] teacher, I see the value in having the eagles do the teaching.
As a veteran myself, I particularly enjoy talking with [veterans and active duty military] and sharing how eagles, like themselves, have made a difference for our country.
