We’d love to have you join our team! Call the park office (864)472-2038 or email us to let us know how you’d like to get involved. Our volunteers make great contributions to the care of Hollywild’s animals, grounds and programs.

 If you’ve got that special knack for flowers or yardwork, consider being a part of our grounds crew. And if you’re a ‘people person’ consider being a volunteer on our special event team, outreach team, greeting team or as a park tour ‘celebrity’ guide. What about being good with mechanical things – helping to maintain our buses or other equipment is an ongoing challenge. Don’t see your interest area here?
