โœจ Today, we're highlighting Chris, one of our amazing wildlife volunteers! โœจChris has been volunteering with us for a little over two years. She first came to us in the spring of 2020 when bringing a in a baby bunny for rehabilitation - she remembered hearing about the Howell Nature Center when her kids were growing up. Chris had felt a deep desire to rehabilitate wildlife, and inquired about volunteering. ๐Ÿ‡Since then, Chris has been volunteering with us twice a week - one day feeding our owl residents and another helping in the rehabilitation clinic. ๐Ÿฆ‰Chris has learned so much at the HNC, and being in the park is the highlight of her week! โœจChris is a retired professor of art, and still likes to make art, including painting owls. She is also an avid reader, dog lover, and horse rider/jumper. ๐ŸŽ Chris has two kids and four grandchildren!Chris, we are so grateful for all that you do for the Howell Nature Center! Our staff and wildlife benefit greatly from the time and dedication you give. Thank you! ๐Ÿฆ‹ ... See MoreSee Less
