Volunteer Opportunities 

DAILY CARE & ENRICHMENT

Our most popular shifts happen 7 days a week, 365 days a year from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. The Flock eagerly greets the morning volunteer crew who serves them up fresh pellets, fruits and veggies followed by time to play and bond!

TIDY UP &
SOCIAL HOUR

You will quickly learn that birds love to make a mess! Every Thursday night, our volunteers swoop in from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm to clean house but are rewarded with one-on-one time with their favourites!

ENRICHMENT +

Introducing Enrichment +. Reserved for Tuesday evenings, this shift is an excellent way to help our Avian Health Technician provide our Flock build toys, create foraging tools and a variety of puzzles to keep our birds minds happy and healthy.

TOUR GUIDES

Weekends are when we open our doors to visitors. Due to COVID-19 we've had to change from an open-house structure to private tours. Help bird-lovers connect our flock members by sharing the amazing experience that is the aviary!
