Volunteering


We do accept new volunteers spring, summer, and fall.  We do require volunteers to go through a training process and we demand the utmost respect be given to the birds in our care.  We take great care not to habituate the wild birds that will be returned to the wild.  We also require new volunteers go through a probation period before ever getting to handle any raptors.  If you are interested please send an email to montanawildskies@gmail.com.

Our Mission

​Our mission is to provide the best possible care, rehabilitation, and eventual release of injured wild birds, focusing our efforts primarily on raptors.  We believe it is our moral obligation to protect and conserve our wildlife and natural resources for future generations through rehabilitation, education, and outreach programs. We strive to cooperate and coordinate with other organizations and agencies in our endeavors.

Hoo all do we at WSRC help? Any bird that is hurt!  We will rehab anyone that is a eagle, owl, hawk or other avian native to Montana.
