Keep Wildlife Wild Day needs volunteers!


A small number of volunteers is needed on Saturday, July 31 to help with handing out information on wildlife feeding and patrolling areas where feeding occurs. Volunteers will be asked to stand at kiosks to hand out information on the park’s wildlife and the dangers of feeding animals in the park. Kiosks will be located at Jackson Visitor Center, Narada Falls picnic area, Paradise picnic area, and Cougar Rock picnic area.



Along with handing out information and talking to visitors, volunteers will be asked to watch for wildlife feeding and to haze animals which are approaching people to beg for food. Active hazing will help keep wildlife from obtaining food and set an example for visitors who may be tempted to feed.



Volunteer times: 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.



Stations: JVC, Narada Falls picnic area, Paradise picnic area, and Cougar Rock picnic area.


Volunteers will be provided a T-shirt to wear with the park’s new Keep Wildlife Wild Logo. Come join the campaign to Keep Wildlife Wild! And enjoy the festivities of the day.



For more information, or to sign up to volunteer please contact Alyssa Herr (360) 569-2211 Ext: 3318

We brought KWWD to the east side last year. I wish we could do so this year but will not be in the area.
