Looking for Volunteers
Why not get involved in something a little different this summer? Join the
Eagle Valley Club! We’re always needing volunteers for various projects around the
center or just to do general upkeep. EVRC offers a variety of volunteer opportunities
for young and old alike. Everything from landscaping, painting, preparing diets,
cleaning and constructing pens, and helping with tours.

The first weekend in June, we had a group of volunteers out to help stain our large
flight pen, an annual chore which goes much faster with more hands and brushes!

Some of our Volunteers:
I'd like to talk about the work that Chase
Ingram did to complete his scout project. One of the photos is him and
his dad in front of one of the Jump Boxes he made. The other photo is Chase and
his fellow scout members staining the flight Pen. Chase earned a Eagle Scout Badge.
He had to plan his project, get all materials, and arrange and supervise any fellow
scout members that helped. He was required to have a total of 100 hours to finish
the project. He is from Troop 743 in Wichita, and did a great job.
Then there is Mary & Carl Herold who are retired people that come out and volunteer,
and also Sharon Sheffler a retired lady who volunteers weekly. They helped us found
the Eagle Valley Club for volunteers.
Wichita Fireman Mark Garcia has built several things for us. He also has come out
and helped with repairs and reinforcing the holding and flight pens.
Two students from the Zoo Science Program at Friends University took part in summer
internships at Eagle Valley. Anna DiSalvo (on left) and Philip Nielsen (on right)
first visited our center on a field trip with their Ornithology class. Their professor,
Dr. Alan Maccarone, is a member of our board of directors, and encouraged his students
to get involved. We were very excited about our first official student internships
and are looking forward to hosting more in the future!
