Volunteer Spotlight

Name(s): Selena & Cayanne 

Position: Barn & Education Mammal Diets 

Began Volunteering at the Nature Center: Summer 2014 

Inspiration to Start Volunteering: After a break from work, Selena was interested in starting a new job. She sat down with Cayanne to discuss her interests and to look for exciting opportunities. Soon after, they began volunteering together at the Nature Center! 

Favorite Part of Volunteering: Selena loves talking to the animals and spending time with the donkeys. Cayanne finds her volunteer experience to be relaxing, quiet and peaceful and she loves talking to the kids when they visit. They both enjoy socializing with Keith, the Nature Center’s Education Curator! 

Favorite Animal at the Nature Center: The barn animals! Selena likes the goats because they are always willing to talk back. Cayanne appreciates Eeyore the donkey because “he is a sweetheart and is always peaking over at us.”

Thank you to Selena, Cayanne and all of the Nature Center volunteers!
