Educational Programs

Staff and volunteers from the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center of Roanoke are happy to share with you our knowledge on wildlife, their rehabilitation, and conservation with the aid of our Educational Ambassadors. Our Educational Ambassadors are non-releasable animals due to various circumstances and now provide the service of helping us connect with people across southwestern Virginia and share our message. Be sure scroll all the way down on this page to see photos of our ambassadors.

We commonly give programs to schools, youth and civic groups, Boy and Girl Scouts, nature clubs (bird clubs, Virginia Master Naturalists, etc), veterinary programs, birthday parties, and more!

To submit a request for a program, please email us at swvawildlifecenter@gmail.com to get in touch with our education team.

Cost: $100 per program
We also encourage in-kind donations from our wish list.
