O.W.L. PROGRAM INFORMATION
The mission of the Oatland Wildlife Leaders (O.W.L) teen program is to provide students with an opportunity to increase and share their knowledge of animals and the environment while gaining valuable volunteer experience in a wildlife center setting. Throughout the program, we aim to teach Oatland’s mission, have students gain a deeper understanding about wildlife and conservation, learn about our animal collection, engage in an important Community Environmental Action Project and participate in informal educational presentations (Discovery Carts).
