Calvert Stewards Animal Care Volunteers work with staff naturalists to care for animals housed at the Cypress Swamp Nature Center. They will feed the turtles, fish, snakes, frogs and mice. Other tasks include cleaning cages, scrubbing turtles, and weighing food for the raptors.
Volunteers work with the animals to acclimate them to people and background noises they will encounter when used for education and outreach programs.
Some volunteers assist with education and outreach activities that involve the captive animals.
