Joan Lewis volunteers her time as a educational docent at the Sulphur Creek Nature Center. She has donated over 1700 hours since she started volunteering in 2007. She assists the naturalist staff with Toddler Time programs, nature classes, school programs, fairs and festivals, after school programs (at MJCC), the disabled adult outreach classes through the CARH and WACE programs in addition to special Storytelling events (Stories Under the Oaks and at the Unhaunted House). She is trained in handling many of our resident animals, works very well with the public, and is especially sensitive to the needs of young children and seniors.
Joan is a real treasure to
this center in that she also brings her profession nursing skills of
kindness, inclusiveness and gentleness to not just the programs here at
HARD, but to everyone and every critter at Sulphur Creek. She is well
respected, loved and appreciated by all of the staff, volunteers, and
critters at Sulphur Creek.
