Review for Treasure Coast Manatee Foundation Inc, Fort Pierce, FL, USA
I have been a volunteer at the Manatee Center for over 20 years. I have learned about manatees & other creatures and their environments through the personnel who were employed or came to teach at the Manatee Center. It is a wonderful place to pass on environmental knowledge and stewardship, especially to our young folks. There is nothing more rewarding than to have families stop to thank you for teaching them about manatees and the live critters at the Center. To me, summer camp has the most impact on the children, and I have heard the older kids (12-13 year olds) say they can't wait to be a junior counselor at camp (15 years old) - and many do. I know that I have found an outlet to pass my knowledge on to other volunteers and our most precious treasure - our children.
