This is Courtney, your new Frogwatch USA Coordinator! I just wanted to update you all on what is going on with the Volunteer Team here at Headquarters.
Emily, your former coordinator, is happily settling into her new position as Volunteer Programs Coordinator! Emily is now working with Habitat Stewards and Habitat Ambassadors. These volunteers are out in the community promoting our Backyard Wildlife Habitat program, and Emily's job is to make sure that they have everything they need, from training to materials!
As for myself, I spent the past summer working with the Habitats Team as a program assistant and fell in love with National Wildlife Federation. Upon the conclusion of my temporary position with the Habitats Team, I was offered the Associate Volunteer Coordinator position! I was ecstatic, mainly because it meant that I would be in charge of Frogwatch, which I believe is a fun and important program.
I look forward to working with you all, and I can't wait until next spring when all of the wonderful frogs will be out and calling again!
