Join Meadowside Nature Center staff and other volunteers on Thursday, December 7th from 9:30am to 12pm for a morning of outdoor exercise as we update exhibit features for our flighted Animal Ambassadors! These are animals under human care due to their injuries or imprinted nature, and serve as educators for stories about their species. Their enclosures are designed with natural features like large rocks, river stones, perches, sticks, and gravel. We will be hauling large rocks and river stones to update the raptor enclosures. Raptors will not be in the spaces while staff and volunteers are performing this work. Time permitting, volunteers may also be able to create DIY crafts that encourage the animals to display natural behaviors, much like chew toys do for dogs.Please wear closed toe shoes and clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Don't forget water and snacks! For ages 14+* to adults. *Students: This is a MCPS school day. Please have your parent or guardian demonstrate you are out of school due to homeschooling, internship hours, or other types of arrangements that provide you the ability to attend.
