I have been volunteering for just over a year as a Zoo Docent. If possible, I try to volunteer once a week, sometimes more during the summertime. The Greensboro Science Center has always been a place that I loved coming to and seeing the animals, so that’s what drew me to apply for the program.
I love working with the public and the other volunteers at GSC. It’s exciting when people tell me that they have learned something or they enjoyed me telling them about the animals. The other volunteers are always great to work with and it makes my time here even better.
One of the funniest moments that happens at least once a shift is when you run into the same group of visitors at every point in our Zoo rotation and someone will make the comment, “are you following us”?
I’ve made many friends in the Volunteer Program and they can make my day when I see that I’m working in the Zoo with them.
