Ms. Rosemarie Cooper has been an amazing volunteer for the Sulphur Creek Nature Center since 2002, with over 2,500 donated hours. She began volunteering at a time when the Wildlife Hospital took in more than 900 animals a year, and was about the size of a large janitor’s closet.
Today, Rosemarie oversees the animal kitchen every Wednesday morning. Her duties include taking care of the Lending Library animals, which include hamsters, mice, rats and guinea pigs. She also takes cares of the rodent colony which provides food for some of our resident animals such as the Golden Eagle, coyotes and foxes, in addition to the dozens of raptors taken in for rehabilitation each year.
