Kellogg Bird Sanctuary to offer pair of Gift Shop volunteer trainings

If you enjoy meeting new people and learning about birds, wildlife and conservation, the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is a great place to share your time and talents.

New and experienced volunteers are invited to learn how to operate the Bird Sanctuary’s Resource Center and Gift Shop. During the training, staff will review opening and closing procedures, cash register operation, new merchandise, and how to welcome the Sanctuary’s guests and enhance their visits.

Two volunteer trainings are planned: the first is from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Feb. 26, and the second is from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 29.

Interested volunteers can register for either the Feb. 26 training or the Feb. 29 training online or by contacting the Sanctuary at birdsanctuary@kbs.msu.edu or (269) 671-2510. Registration for each training closes two days prior to training date.

The Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is located at 12685 East C Ave., one mile north of M-89 and just west of 40th Street. To learn more, visit birdsanctuary.kbs.msu.edu.
