I had some good experiences volunteering at Piedmont Wildlife Center as I felt I was contributing and there are nice people there, but when I set a limit against doing any (and usually last minute) administrative task (I didn't sign up for that), which seemed to pop into one leader's head while I wasn't given the information I needed to do my agreed upon tasks, I realized this area of administration is probably running along a rut, and I needed to leave. The Center seems to have two strong programs, with each leader very focused on their interest. So, for example, if you want to volunteer to work with raptors, you are likely to have a good experience. There aren't many volunteer roles for the Center's biggest strength, youth and teen camps and adult workshops, but the education director does take time to listen to and support the volunteers and interns as much as her schedule allows. Other areas mentioned in the Center's mission statement are run chaotically. I heard (summer '10) the mission statement is being revised, so perhaps these challenges will be addressed with the changes. For now, I only recommend accepting short-term, group volunteer assignments. The special projects coordinator, a volunteer, does a good job leading group tasks such as grounds maintenance.

Provide better general management and allow the interests and passions of staff members to channel into the specific roles for which they have skills and enthusiasm.
