Have you ever rang a dinner bell for a flying squirrel?

Flying squirrels are perhaps the coolest woodland creature you've never seen. Every evening around dusk, these secretive creatures come out in search of food, gliding up to 100 feet in between trees.

Locust Grove Nature Center is looking for volunteers passionate about wildlife for our new Flying Squirrel Feeder Program. Load our feeding platforms with nutritious sunflower seeds, use our pulley system to hoist the platforms high into the trees, and ring the dinner bell. Then watch as flying squirrels glide from platform to platform for a free meal.

An orientation to the program and training provided. After completing training, you must demonstrate an ability to work independently without a staff member.

Schedule
Flying squirrels are creatures of habit, and for the success of the program, volunteers must be willing to commit to a routine. We're looking for volunteers who can come once a week at dusk for approximately a half hour.
