Do you like to meet people? Are you interested in spreading the word about the amazing natural resource in your backyard? This is a great opportunity to visit festivals, fairs, expos, and other events to talk with the public about the Sanctuary and its programs. We will offer training and support to those who can commit to several events a year.
