Learn about being an Audubon animal care volunteer, Thursday, June 17

On Thursday, June 17, Kim Turner, Audubon Community Nature Center animal care specialist, will lead an information session for prospective Audubon animal care volunteers. Turner is pictured cleaning Snapper the Snapping Turtle’s tank.

The Audubon Community Nature Center will host an information session for animal care volunteers from 11 a.m. to noon Thursday, June 17, led by Kim Turner, Audubon’s animal care specialist.

Along with a number of animal care volunteers, Turner will describe what opportunities are available and the type of training needed. There will be time to talk with the current volunteers, meet the animals, and have questions answered.

If caring for the animals might not be a good fit, there will also be information on other ways area residents can volunteer at Audubon.

Space is limited for the free program. Regardless of vaccination status, face coverings are required for all indoor programs.

Walk-ins are welcome, but reservations are appreciated by calling 569-2345 or clicking through “Register for a Program” at AudubonCNC.org.
