We are sending out a howl for Weekend Warriors to help us with ground wire and top wire fencing. In exchange for your hard work, we are offering free nights stay at our Wolf Den Lodge September 12th,13th and 14th, or a free site in our campground for that same weekend.  We’ll also feed you a ontinental breakfast and lunch during your stay.

     The work is outdoor physical labor and involves various projects in fulfillment of a grant received from the Carroll Petrie Foundation. Hours for work will be approximately between 10am-5pm with an hour break for lunch.
All work will be supervised with sta” on hand to guide our volunteers. Tasks may include:
  • Ground wire installtaion in one habitat (this involves serious digging in the hard or muddy adobe soil)
  • Ground wire installation, top wire installation (working on a ladder) 
We are looking for 5-8 people and most likely rooms will be double occupancy with couches and futons being utilized. For other groups sizes or needs, please ask and we will see what we can do. If you would like to camp, there is no restriction on size of group.
Dates for staying in our rentals are:

Thursday- Saturday, September 12, 13, 14 in our Wolf Den Lodge

As stated, simple breakfast and lunch will be provided. For dinner, you will be on your own.
There are a couple of restaurants about a half hour away or you can plan to shop for supplies.
There are full kitchens and propane grills at the residences and campfires for cooking at thecampsites. (Keep in mind that outdoor cooking may be restricted due to local fire hazards.)
You will be working inside the perimeter right next to our wolves and may get to meet one or two along the way. If this sounds like it might be hard work but very cool, rewarding and fun for you or your group, please RSVP promptly so we can arrange our side of things to best
accommodate you and/or your group.
If you have any questions, feel free to email or call 505-775-3304 and ask for Josh
McNitt. Be sure to mention the Carroll Petrie weekends so you are properly directed.
Howls of Thanks for your amazing support. We hop to hear from you soon!

Weekend Warriors

Can’t commit to three months?  If youre visiting our sanctuary and would like to help with a project, Wild Spirit’s Weekend Warrior initiative is a great way for you to help out while still enjoying the sanctuary. We have had many individuals and groups join us in helping the animals for a day or weekend, including boy scouts, girl scouts, and family groups.

Past Weekend Warrior projects have included landscaping, campground clean-up, maintenance projects, and assistance at outreach events. Many individuals have loaned a specific skill to help complete a project, such as creating new animal signs or building a fence. As a thank you to groups performing a service project, we discount your stay and tours! To learn more about group packages available to Weekend Warriors, contact us!

If you are interested in becoming one of our Weekend Warriors, please complete our Weekend Warriors Inquiry Form.

**NOTE: Sending in the inquiry form DOES NOT mean you are guaranteed the requested date or project. Please wait for one of our staff to contact you to verify. If you have any additional questions, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
