These opportunities to broaden the knowledge of what is important to the environment in North Carolina have been life -changing for Jill.
” I have a great love for nature. I want to be outside working with my hands creating habitat for wildlife by planting native plants or removing invasive species or just enjoying the plants and wildlife. I enjoy talking to anyone who will listen about how they too can make small changes that will make big differences for wildlife”
