| New Volunteer is the Voice of PRAC|
| A call or visit to the Pascagoula River Audubon Center will give you the chance to meet Leslie Price, our newest volunteer and member of our flock!|
With only two full-time employees, the out-of-the-blue call from Leslie looking for volunteer opportunities turned out to be a perfect match for PRAC.
Leslie was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin but relocated to Pascagoula in 1972. She is the wife of Don, an Electrical Supervisor for NTI. Together they have three awesome children. Seth is 29, lives in Pascagoula and works in Water Treatment. Joshua is 28, lives in Springfield MO and works in Retail. Cheryl Ann is 26, lives in Pascagoula and was just accepted to the Halter Apprenticeship program. She also has a furbaby named Huckleberry, a sweet and handsome Tuxedo. She also has two furry grandpups, Edith and Dakota and two furry grandkitties, Zelda and Midna. Along with being a wife and mother, she is also an ordained minister and wedding officiant. While looking for some outdoor adventure activities, she found the Pascagoula River Audubon Center online and saw the need for volunteers.
“I offered to visit the center to see if my time and skills could be useful,” she said. “I started volunteering at the center in mid June and have had a wonderful experience here. The Audubon is a beautiful place, full of nature and little critters. I have learned a lot about them while volunteering here. I have seen tons of different birds, turtles, raccoons, red foxes, alligators and so many other things. I get to work with great people that truly love the Audubon. I meet new people that are visiting the center everyday, and the Discovery Camps were a blast to see all the children having so much fun.”Her hobbies include genealogy, traveling, riding motorcycles and kayaking.
