Antler Ridge is a great place to volunteer if you love animals, don't mind working hard and are ok with getting a little dirty! It has been a great volunteer experience for my teenager as the director and team leaders have really taken her under their wing. She has learned so much and gained a lot of confidence and independence. Antler Ridge's mission to help wildlife and educate the public stands out in everything that they do. It is a high functioning operation with an important role in the community.
