Hands-on… more than a couple words in our mission

As an animal care intern, I was responsible for tending to the needs of various animals at the ENC. The hands-on experience prepared me for the number of fieldwork studies I conducted through past and current semesters. I am so grateful for the many opportunities that allowed me to grow out of my comfort zone, and find passion in conservation education. Currently I am graduating from California State University, Fullerton with a B.S in biological science, and can’t wait to bring my skills from the ENC to future endeavors.

The ENC impacts the lives of children and adults from throughout Orange County. Over 28,000 visited last year to study the environment, gain respect for nature, and learn ecological responsibility and sustainable practices. 

The ENC would not be an educational resource in our community without wonderful supporters like you.  We are counting on your continued support, and now would be a great time to give.

Any gift you give to the Environmental Nature Center before MIDNIGHT, December 31 is tax deductible for 2018. Please make a year-end gift today to help us continue providing quality education through hands-on experience with nature. We are grateful for your gift, and genuinely appreciate every dollar we receive.

Thanks, and a Happy New Year to you.
