Library display

In an effort to increase our outreach for the CHCI Docent Program, myself along with Meg and Lynn set up a display in the city library that will be up all month long. If you live locally, stop by to check it out! And you can use your smart phone to scan the QR code that is front and center, which will take you to a page about how to become a docent. If you don’t have a smartphone or just don’t take it with you to the library 😉 you can email us at and we’ll be in touch with a docent application. Being a docent is a lot of fun—you get to help educate guests and see the chimpanzees during guided observations. It’s how I got started working with chimps some seven years ago!
