"After I retired I wanted to give back to the Community that helped raise me and my children. The Nature and Arts Center has fit that bill."~ Bonnie
"I see TNAC as a great opportunity for people to experience nature and learn about the environment. I particularly enjoy teaching children from local schools and camps when they visit during field trips." ~ Kevin
"The reason I became involved with the Nature Center was I needed an Outreach Project for my Master Gardener certification in 2007. I saw the sign, contacted the town and began the butterfly garden installation with Ruth Mohr. Many projects later, I still enjoy sharing knowledge and learning new things at the Nature Center." ~ Meg
"My love for nature and arts brought me to the Trumbull Nature and Arts Center. I feel that in this technology-driven world each community must strive to encourage its residents to develop and strengthen their connection to nature and the living world around them. I believe the Trumbull Nature and Arts Center is that organization in our community. I met some very hardworking volunteers at the center. I get a chance to be creative, share my ideas with the team and be a part of an ongoing effort to educate our community about the environment, nature and arts." ~ Rasa
"I became involved with TNAC as a way to fill the gap between my passion for all types of conservation (water, energy, natural resources) and my commitment to the education of our young people. TNAC is an education driven organization that is guided by our love of the environment. My goal is for the center to reach more people of all ages and backgrounds." ~ Scot
"I've had many rewarding experiences in the short time that I've been volunteering for TNAC. It's a great place to make a difference at the local level. " ~ Sheryl
