Location: Eureka Springs, Arkansas
Agency: Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge
Mode of Transportation: Passenger Van

Service Projects

There is no contact with the animals. There are many projects which need to be done that currently take time from the agency's primary staff that care for over 100 exotic cats.

Participants will assist in group projects including, but not limited to, painting, grounds maintenance, construction and cleanup.

2015 Experience

This trip has immediately rendered itself to being one of the best experiences I’ve had because of the emotion and sentiment attached. You get to know the people you’re with and I knew I was going to miss my whole team and living simply in Eureka Springs. Volunteering makes you appreciate and value the little things in life.
