If you are interested in helping at Five Rivers’ programs and events and you are at least 12 years old, consider becoming a Student or Assistant Naturalist. Naturalists help us with a variety of jobs, including setting up and removing exhibits, passing around animal skulls and pelts at programs, and occasionally assisting the public with activities at events. If you are interested in this type of volunteer opportunity and would like to sign up for this training, please call Five Rivers at 475-0291 by Tuesday, July 8.
