Ages 10 and up. (Teens, ages 15 and up may attend without a parent, but children between 10 and 14 must be accompanied by an adult)
We are always looking for an extra hand to take care of the nature center's live animals. As you accompany staff, you will learn how to clean cages, feed the animals and handle them. Once you are trained, you will be able to sign up to care for the animals as often as you'd like.
Naturalist in charge: Shannon Steele
Location: Battle Creek Cypress Swamp
