Volunteering at Scherman Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary


Our volunteers are truly at the heart of our organization. So much of what we do on a day-to-day basis could not be accomplished without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. Whether they are answering phones and greeting customers in our bookstore, outside maintaining our trails and grounds, or lending a hand at our many on- and off-site events, our volunteers give of their time and talent in so many ways.

We are proud to recognize volunteers at our annual Holiday Party, and this year several volunteers reached the 3,000 and 2,000 hour service milestones.

Over 3,000 Hours - Pat Balko, Dorothy Clair, Laurie Larson
Over 2,000 Hours - Dick Donat, Fran Duggan, Else Greenstone, Tom Halliwell, Mike Lyncheski, Linda Matula, Barbara Nadolny, Joy Petzinger
