I have volunteered at many non-profits over 25 years. I have learned more from Nature's Educators than any other organization I have been with. I love to see the faces of the kids and public when our ambassadors come out and they learn something new! I also like the fact that Nature's Educators have different programs including ones with reptiles and bugs.

I have been with Nature's Educators for 2 years and have greatly enjoyed the time here. In the past, I have volunteered with other raptor organizations and I find Nature's Educators to be the most exciting, drama free, and dynamic environment to date. The board is great and we always try to incorporate new and exciting ideas to propel the organization into the future. The best, I am sure is yet to come.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I work in wildlife rehab, I deal with sick and injured raptors on the daily basis, it is my job to try and help them survive, recover, and be released. That doesn't always happen, and often enough I am left with birds that survive but cannot be released. My job then becomes a search to find a home for each bird that will provide the BEST care and the BEST possible life.

Nature's Educators has now received three of my organizations birds. They are highly professional, care enormously about their ambassadors' well being and provide a fantastic educational service that outdoes any other that I have seen. I am not only comfortable sending my non-releasable birds to them, I am excited to get the chance to see them and what they are doing, even if they are over 1000 miles away from me and my organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Build a facility as soon as you can, I want to see what you can do with land to call your own.

Our youth are our future, we must teach them as much about our world as possible. Natures Educators teaches why we must protect our environment and its wildlife.

I have seen kids hang onto every word Devin said during a presentation, She knows just when and how to ask thought provoking questions that involve the young and older folks alike.

Devin is also a master at using each volunteers skills and strengths to the very best advantage of the organization.

Nature's Educators is an absolutely amazing organization and I'm so proud to be a board member. The team of over 30 volunteers works so hard (even while having full-time jobs) to make this organization successful and to give the best possible care to the raptors, reptiles, and insects which are the heart of the program. I have worked with a variety of non-profits and this group is so passionate, hard-working, and dedicated it's unbelievable. The programs are outstanding and can be taught to all ages. The animals are beautiful and are so well-cared for. Their enclosures are terrific! I personally can't wait until this group has a public facility someday.

As a Cub Master, you are always trying to have fun and exciting things at your Pack Meeting for the scouts. We brought in Nature's Educators to teach the scouts about the importance of the wildlife around us, and the differences between the kinds of birds of prey. They were amazing, and exceptionally knowledgeable. The scouts were captivated by the raptors, and learned a great deal. Afterwards, the volunteers were so patient in answering all the questions that were thrown at them by the scouts. We will definitely have them back next year!

This is a wonderful educational outreach progam designed to reach as many people as possible teaching the importance of wildlife in the grand scheme. The animals are cared for exceptionally well, with enrichment items to play with in a clean, safe environment by compassionate volunteers.
