My Why: Charley Mays

How does the GSC impact individuals, families and communities? We think it’s best to let YOU answer that question!

Read our Q&A with GSC volunteer Charley Mays to learn about what makes the GSC so special to him.

What do you do as a GSC volunteer? I answer questions and converse with guests to improve their experience with our animals.

How many years have you been a GSC volunteer? 6

Why did you choose to volunteer with us? When my daughters were young, the Science Center was a regular outing for us for years. Volunteer docents made our visits special every time. Now that my daughters have grown and moved away, I took advantage of the opportunity to do the same for other families.

What impact do you hope to have as a GSC volunteer? I hope to enrich the experiences of guests with our animals as a way to build increased enthusiasm for wildlife conservation.

Why is the GSC important to you personally? I am very concerned about the plight of wildlife in the modern world, and the GSC is a fantastic local opportunity to influence people to improve the long term outlook for wildlife conservation.

Why is the GSC important to the community? Our community is very blessed to have a world-class facility with museum, zoo and aquarium all in one place, which entertains people from all over the country and simultaneously educates them about wildlife conservation.
