It’s been a busy fall for our volunteer program:
- Four new Docents and three new TWIGs completed their Wildlife Interpretation training in early October! We have also been busy training new Wildlife Watchers to help record animal behavior for our animal welfare program.
- 595 volunteer hours were recorded in September and 431 in October. Of these, 209 hours in September/October were contributed by our group volunteers who came from Oracle and SAP for BioBlitzes; San Mateo Boys & Girls Club, Wells Fargo, Franklin-Templeton, and National Charity League for Coastal Cleanup; and Salesforce for marsh restoration work. Thank you!
- Volunteer Celebration planning has begun. The planning committee is meeting monthly to prepare!
