  • How do I become a volunteer? +

    The first step is to fill out a volunteer application.
  • Can my child(ren) volunteer with me? +

    We welcome children to volunteer with their parents. However, we do not allow children under the age of 11 to interact with our parrots.
  • Is there an age limit to volunteer? +

    We welcome everyone 12 and over to volunteer. However, if you are under the driving age, you must volunteer with a parent. Being a volunteer bears a lot of responsibility for our parrots, and for your own well-being. We cannot monitor children 24/7, since we have responsibilities of our own.
  • I would like to volunteer, but what if I don't have any experience with birds? +

    We are happy to show you the ropes to becoming an experienced bird caretaker!
