I start next week. I hope that this will give me insights to my options in the Naturalist pursuit. K~
Animal Care Crew: Approximately half our admits are adult animals who have been injured by a car, dog, cat or some other human-related impact on its life. We are thankful for more than 80 year-round volunteers who commit to coming to the center on a weekly basis to provide loving care to these recuperating animals. If you'd like to help injured wildlife return to its natural habitat, we have a great opportunity for you!
