Volunteer Spotlight Kira

How long have you been volunteering at the nature center? What are your duties?

I have been volunteering at the Nature Center since the first of September, 2017. I get to do a lot of different things; I feed the animals, clean their cages, help with mailings, help keep the center clean, and help in the gift shop.

What do you like most about volunteering at the Nature Center?

I like being with the animals and being with people who like the animals and want to help them and protect them.

What is your favorite teaching animal? Why?

I like the snakes because they are so clever and I think it's really cool that they can smell with their tongues.

What are your hobbies?

I love art. I paint and draw almost every single day and I sometimes even create photographs with old-fashioned film cameras. I have had my art displayed in gallery shows.

What is one interesting or unique fact about yourself?

I love singing and making up new songs with my Mom.
