The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
While enjoying a tropical oasis in a relaxing atmosphere, you'll welcome visitors, answer questions, and assist guests in making sure the butterflies don't escape. Volunteers are encouraged to develop their butterfly knowledge and species identification skills as they spend time in a truly remarkable environment. During a typical volunteer shift, you might offer techniques for the best way to get a butterfly to land on a guest, gently remind visitors how fragile these flying creatures are, share about butterfly life cycles and help guests exit without any butterflies.
No previous experience required, just bring an enthusiasm for learning & sharing about tropical butterflies! This is a year-round opportunity and requires volunteers to commit to 4 hours per month for the duration of their volunteering. This volunteer position does not include any feeding, cleaning or care of animals.
