Volunteers Needed at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary
Nov 04, 2013 01:50PM
The Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, in Naples, is looking for volunteers to serve as guides and interpreters on its famed 2.25-mile boardwalk through an ancient cypress forest. The commitment is for a minimum of one, four-hour day per week between 11:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Audubon’s Corkscrew provides a three-day naturalist training for new volunteers and ongoing learning opportunities. Volunteers use Audubon’s conservation message and information about local flora, fauna and habitat to enrich and expand the visitor experience at Corkscrew. They engage visitors through interpretation along the boardwalk, helping to notice things that might otherwise be missed, encouraging questions and helping to patrol and enforce Sanctuary rules and boardwalk safety.
Location: 375 Sanctuary Rd. W. For more information, call Amy Kessler at 239-348-9151 ext. 111 or visit Corkscrew.Audubon.org and click on the Learn & Explore tab for information on all volunteer opportunities.
