This fee supports staff time and resources associated with processing and training.

Volunteers 18 AND OVER will be asked to pay $40, this fee covers the cost of a criminal background check and supports staff time and resources associated with training and processing. This is a criminal history only check, not a credit check. Our insurance mandates this check because we have groups of children on the premises year-round.

Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge does not host police or court-ordered community service hours. We do appreciate all types of service, but our status as an education facility prohibits our organization from hosting police or court-ordered community service.

To discuss service projects, please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Heather Evans.
