Service Learning Projects

Interested in volunteering for Piedmont Wildlife Center through a service learning project? Here are a couple of ideas to get you started:

  1. Choose a project that benefits the environment in some way.
  2. If you have a specific deadline, make sure your project can be completed by the deadline.
  3. Make sure you have the resources (money, supplies, people) to complete your project.


Brown-headed-Nuthatch-Nest-BoxProject Ideas:

  • Make brown-headed nuthatch boxes and place in a local park (with permission).
  • Clean-up litter on roadways, your neighborhood, or in parks.
  • Make DIY bird-feeders and place in your backyard to promote healthy wildlife habitat.
  • Remove invasive plants and plant native plants in your yard, neighborhood, or park.
  • Create outdoor educational signs to educate others on our natural resources.

Eagle Project (or other large project) Ideas:

  • Make outdoor enclosures for PWC’s wildlife ambassadors.
  • Help maintain or modify the bridges on our trails.
  • Remove invasive species and┬áreplace with native plants that are good substitutes.
  • Artistic? Create outdoor educational signs for wildlife ambassadors and native plants.
