Continuing Education for 2020:

Please remember that two hours of continuing education a year are required by the Department of Fish and Wildlife. Due to low or a lack of attendance, we will be cutting back the classes we offer here at the center. If you have already taken our classes and need to find classes to take to fulfill your requirement, you will have to attend classes at Wildcare in San Rafael or go to one of the wildlife conferences offered by CCWR, IWRC, OWCN, or NWRA. In order for us to count your education hours, you must turn in a certificate or proof that you attended a Department approved class.

If you have family or friends interested in volunteering, orientations will be held the first Saturday in January from 10:00am to 4:00pm.  


To attend a class, you must be registered. To register, you can call the office at (707) 992-0274 or email All classes are held at the center on 403 Mecham Rd, Petaluma 94952. Please see our main volunteer page for information on admission fee.
