HAPPY NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK! "Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart." ~Elizabeth Andrew #NationalVolunteerWeek
Today we are recognizing the Wildlife Educator Volunteers who help guests of all ages learn more about our resident animal ambassadors and how to conserve their species.
Wildlife Educator Elise roves the exhibit hall with Zeus the California kingsnake to show guests that snakes aren't slimy and, in fact, make wonderful backyard neighbors that help control rodent populations. Wildlife Educator Candace shares her knowledge about Shadow the Great Gray Owl, a California Endangered Species.
Our dedicated education volunteers provide valuable interpretation, science activities, and conservation stories to the over 100,000 guests who visit Lindsay Wildlife Experience each year. We simply could not provide the range of hands-on activities and up-close animal encounters without our Wildlife Educators. They engage guests during school programs, out in the community, during special events, and from 10am-5pm daily in the exhibit hall. To join our team of Wildlife Educators, please sign up for the next Volunteer Opportunities Class https://lindsaywildlife.org/become-volunteer/. .
