VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH
Carmen “Gavy” Barrett is our Volunteer of the Month. If you’ve been through the Aviary on a Saturday, you’ve probably seen Gavy giving a tour and educating our guests about our avian friends in the Everglades. Gavy has been giving tours at Flamingo Gardens since November of last year.
Of her volunteering, Gavy says “ I have always loved to be around Nature (animals and plants in particular). I have a deep admiration for birds, especially Ravens, Crows, Blue Jays, Parrots, Cormorants and Hawks. They are so intelligent and have great personalities. I have 4 rescued parrots which I consider my feathered children. By giving educational tours in the Aviary at Flamingo Gardens, I can show children and adults how wonderful it is to be in the natural world. It makes you feel happy and at peace”.
