Our Tribe’s Fortune – 500 Hour Pin Recipient (Hard in good times but “Wow” in a pandemic!)
I volunteer at both Connemara and the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center. Both afford me the opportunity to be outside and keep busy even with COVID. These locations allowed me to volunteer while keeping a safe distance from other volunteers. Both locations provide projects which are physical and mentality enriching. It is satisfying knowing I am getting a good physical workout, learning about prairies/grasses and forbs while contributing to the restoration of our original fauna.
