Week Day Chimposiums

Being involved with the docent program is rewarding on many levels! One of my favorite experiences as a docent is the opportunity to introduce young children to the wonders of chimpanzees. Spring is a particularly busy time for school groups visiting on field trips; last week we hosted 1st graders from a local school. After the trip the teachers, Debi, Lisa & Sherrie, sent us thank you letters from their students. I’ve included some of the pictures and a few of their comments below. Click on each link to see each one.  This is what being a docent is all about – educating and, hopefully, inspiring a new generation to care about chimpanzees. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
