"I enjoy volunteering at River Legacy because the staff genuinely enjoy sharing their knowledge of nature to everyone, especially children.”
Nancy Newsom
River Legacy Volunteer
"River Legacy is a special place for me. I enjoy volunteering because it is a way of giving back to a place that I have loved for over 30 years. My daughters learned to ride their bikes there. Whenever I walk the trails with my dog or go biking with friends, I never fail to see wildlife in their natural environment - birds, snakes, armadillos, turtles, ducks, geese, hawks, and of course, the bobcats!"
