Most people will only get to see the “fun” side of Catty Shack – you know, coming by to see all the animals play, snooze, roar, eat, snooze some more…but there’s a lot going on behind the scenes every day. Every day, volunteers work tirelessly to clean habitats, build new enclosures, repaint fences, landscape, and much, much more.
Sometimes, like this past Saturday (April 7), we have great groups from our community help us out. During this past work day, these two groups (along with our volunteers) helped do
everything from landscape (mulching, etc.) to working on habitats (such as reworking “den” roofs).
A special “thank you” to Christopher Washington and the group from Mayport Naval Station for spending their Saturday with us. Mayport is one of three major Naval stations in Jacksonville and is the third largest Naval Facility in the continental U.S.
Another special “thank you” to Eddie Bajek and the group from Impact Jax. Impact Jax is a program for young professionals through the Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce and currently has over 600 members. To learn more, visit their website!
If you have a group that would be interested in setting up a “work day” with us, please contact us.
