Animal Care Animal Care Animal Care Animal Care

The animals at Sandy Creek Nature Center feature in many of our programs and exhibits. Their care is extremely important, and volunteers help us keep all of our critters happy and healthy!  

Animal Care Volunteers make a weekly commitment to perform duties related to animal feeding, cleaning, and maintenance. Our needs are always changing, but such duties may include:

* Preparing diets for our turtles & exotic lizards, and cleaning their tanks

* Feeding marine and freshwater fish

* Performing water chemistry tests

* Spray-misting and spot cleaning our exhibit amphibians

* Daily housekeeping tasks including laundry, dishes, and sweeping
