Corporate Volunteer Service
Interested in bringing your corporate team to the DLC for some community service and lemur fun? Consider our Corporate Service Package, which includes the following:
-2 hours of service work
-60 minute Walking with Lemurs or Behind the Scenes Tour (weather dependent)
-Certificate of service
Price: $40 + tax per person
Group Size: 8-15 people
Service: A service day at the DLC consists of two hours assisting with outdoor center maintenance: anything from mulching in gardens, hauling gravel to animal enclosures, pulling weeds, clearing paths through forested habitats, etc. Projects vary by season and weather. Volunteers get a more behind-the-scenes look of the center and help us with much needed fall/spring cleaning. Gloves and tools are provided.
Tour: On a Walking tour, participants are guided through one of our nine naturally forested habitats to see lemurs leaping from tree to tree and exploring the NC forest. Though there will not be a barrier between you and the lemurs, the lemurs will not directly interact with any guests. We encourage natural behaviors from our lemurs, ensuring a safe and unique experience of what it would be like to wander the forests of Madagascar. On a Behind the Scenes tour, participants spend the majority of the time in areas that are typically off-limits to visitors, seeing the DLC through the eyes of its dedicated staff. Participants will see lemurs in their indoor enclosures and will hear about species’ natural history and the family history of the groups that there are viewing.
How to Book: We are no longer accepting corporate service requests for fall 2023. A service request form for Spring 2024 will be posted in January. Please contact Erin Hecht (email@example.com) with any additional questions.
NOTE: Fall 2023 availability is limited to late September-November due to staff schedules. The likelihood of getting your group on the schedule increases if you have weekday availability! The request form will remain open through the summer and we will be back in contact with you in early to mid-September to discuss your service request.
