Frequently Asked Questions
Do the membership packages expire? Because the membership packages include a specific number of volunteer dates, there is no membership expiration. However, memberships will need to be renewed once a child has attended all of the allotted volunteer dates included in his or her specific membership package.
How do I sign up for a volunteer date? To sign up for a volunteer date please email the humane educator at email@example.com. A week before the volunteer date they will email you to confirm that you will be attending your scheduled date.
