Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife

County: Lee
Categories Environment
Details:

A non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of wildlife in the City of Cape Coral. Education is also an important component of our mission.

We are active citizens of Cape Coral and surrounding communities who want to help the area's burrowing owls and other wildlife thrive as the community grows.

Job Description:

Volunteers work outdoors assisting CCFW members in staking starter burrows, as well as trimming and maintaining existing nests around the City of Cape Coral.

CCFW distributes materials for perches (free!) and shows residents how to build starter burrows on their property. Owls that have been displaced by construction recognize these burrows and are happy to move in. The group also instructs people how to safely and properly maintain new and existing burrows, as the owls are known to abandon burrows that become overgrown.

Volunteers need to attend one training workshop before starting position. Job is performed on Wednesdays at designated locations around Cape Coral. Group meets at 9:00 AM near the parking lot of Target, located on Veterans Pkwy.

Times of Work: Weekdays daytime
