Halters Volunteer Program

This program is a great opportunity to learn about working a farm and what it takes to care for our animals. This is a program that will stay with you for a lifetime due to all the skills and teaching you will receive from our trained staff. Voluteeers feed our animals, help keep our park grounds clean, assist with programming and much more. This program offers four levels, based on age and progression through the program.

Friends of Lockwood

The Friends of Lockwood group was established in 2003. They are a group of local citizens who volunteer a lot of time to help Lockwood Park come to life! The Friends of Lockwood also volunteer their time driving tractors, hay bailing, and making our special events very unique and fun! Friends of Lockwood hold various fundraisers throughout the year, and all money raised goes directly to the care and feeding of the animals, along with special projects at Lockwood Park. The Friends of Lockwood meet monthly and are always looking for more volunteers. For more information "Like" them on Facebook.
