British Invasion

Wow! It’s hard to believe that summer is over (at least unofficially), and dozens of school groups will be “invading” the Nature Center in the coming weeks. We can’t wait to introduce these eager and enthusiastic youngsters to the wonders of Maymont and the natural world.

This summer, we were pleased to have another type of invasion at Maymont…a British invasion. Laura Howles from London, England volunteered with the Habitats team for two weeks in July.  She had the opportunity to work in animal care and environmental education.  In order to add an international flair to our summer volunteer program, we partnered with one of our colleagues at VCU Life Sciences.

It was a real pleasure to work with Laura and the rest of our energetic team of summer volunteers and interns. Thanks to all of them!
