Volunteering at Chico Creek Nature Center
The Chico Creek Nature Center offers valuable work experience for people who are interested in animal care, museum services, or environmental education. Many of our volunteers are home-schooled students, retired people, and college students. If you are interested in volunteering please refer to the positions we have available below.
We are looking for park knowledgeable individuals to staff our new building, which features Howard S. Tucker Hall and Kristie’s Nature Lab. The Chico Creek Nature Center docent service is an easy and great means to promote stewardship of Bidwell Park, meet the community, and help to promote the beautiful new facility that the community has worked so long to complete. We need your help this year as we plan on expanding services through the new exhibit hall and classroom. A short 45 minute training session will be provided prior to volunteering. No opening or closing required. A CCNC staff member will always be available for assistance.
The following shifts are currently available Friday through Sunday:
Animal Caretaker Assistant
As an animal caretaker volunteer you will assist our Animal Care Technician with feeding, cleaning, and exercising our live animals, which include raptors, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and birds. Currently, we have over 20 different animals who reside at the Nature Center.
Internships are available to college students whose studies include life sciences, education, child development, recreation, and related subjects.
