DATE
Fri, Mar 1, 2013

DETAILS

Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium is seeking to fill open volunteer positions within our Bug Ambassador program. This is ongoing.

Bug Ambassadors serve as the link between the animals that we house at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium and the thousands of guests that visit our facility each year. Bug Ambassadors interpret live animal exhibits, engage visitors in learning, and assist staff with live animal presentations.

Bug Ambassadors must be 16 years of age or older, complete the training course, and commit to one weekly shift for one year. A contribution of $30.00 helps cover costs of training materials and uniforms.
