Chase Sloan, a junior at Hawken School started with us as a 4-year old camper and began volunteering with our Outdoor Adventure Camp at 13 years old. Every summer, Chase’s dedication to inspiring, encouraging, and helping campers to have fun while respecting the environment shines through. This summer we had lots of first-time teen volunteers and Chase took time to share great tips and advice with them. When not volunteering at the Nature Center, Chase is baking cakes and raising money for cancer research as the author of “Cakes for Cancer” a recipe book.
Ian Ashton, a service missionary majoring in biology, began volunteering for the Nature Center in spring 2021. Right away, Ian volunteered twice a week as a Stewardship Assistant and a Trail Ambassador, adding Nature Guide not long after. When assisting with stewardship, Ian gives 110%, regardless of the project and enjoys learning more about the environment as he helps to care for it. Ian then, with a smile, hits the trails and shares some of that knowledge: helping us create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for our visitors. In addition to volunteering for the Nature Center, Ian volunteers for his church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints with hunger and literacy initiatives.
Thank you to the many volunteers who gave their time and energy in support of our mission. We are extremely appreciative of your service!
