Volunteer Spotlight

May's Volunteer of the Month!

Mt. Lebanon, PA. resident Fran Reichl is the National Aviary's current Volunteer Spotlight! Ms. Reichl joined the National Aviary as a volunteer in 2016. With an unprecedented sense of passion and ambition, she has served over 1,900 volunteer hours in just a year and a half. Though her exceptional self-motivation, Ms. Reichl now serves as a docent and educator representing the National Aviary.

Ms. Reichl explained, “I moved back to Pittsburgh after a 17 year hiatus. During this long absence, many of my friends disappeared from the area. I signed on as a volunteer at the National Aviary to find new friends, who like me, were passionate about birds and I came to learn and to teach others about these incredible animals. These goals have been met beyond my imagination."

Thank you, Fran, for your exceptional spirit and passion as a volunteer!
