At CuriOdyssey, we recognize that volunteers are critical to our success.
Each year, more than 100 individuals ages 13 and up support CuriOdyssey by volunteering on a regular basis. There are volunteer opportunities in many areas, including: roving wildlife interpretative guides, summer camp volunteers, conservation project volunteers, and Wildlife Department assistants. Volunteers receive many special privileges including educational opportunities, social events with other volunteers, a newsletter specifically written for volunteers, free family membership, and the knowledge that the community benefits from each volunteer’s time.
Our goal is to provide enjoyable and rewarding experiences for all our dedicated volunteers. Every volunteer receives position-appropriate training and in most cases, is asked to make a significant commitment of time. Please see Volunteer Opportunities section below for specific responsibilities, important application details and age requirements for our current volunteer openings. If you complete our Online Volunteer Application, you will be contacted with more information on positions which fit your stated interests, age range, and availability.
For other volunteer inquiries, or if you do not hear from us within 7 days of submitting an online application, contact our Manager of Volunteer Engagement Lee Cauble at lcauble(at)curiodyssey.org or 650-340-7580.
