VJenny Carrollolunteer Jenny Carroll is willing to bust out some dance moves to teach people about nature.

“Jenny knows how to have fun and captivate a group,” said Kevin Kepler, volunteer services manager. “She is known for creating a version of the hokey pokey that demonstrates butterfly metamorphosis. Now, that’s dedication!” Carroll started volunteering with MetroParks in 2008 as a guide in the Butterfly House at Cox Arboretum MetroPark. Soon afterward, she became a school tour guide, hiking through woodlands, prairies and next to ponds to help children learn about nature through hands-on experiences. “She has always had a passion for nature and has found that the opportunities to get involved and to give back to the community offered through MetroParks have provided her the confidence and knowledge to share her passion with others,” Kepler said.

A few years ago, Carroll took on additional responsibilities as a Butterfly House volunteer lead, helping train new volunteers about the fascinating world of pollinators and how to share that knowledge with the public. She also has completed the Certified Interpretive Guide training, a course sanctioned by the National Association for Interpretation and offered through MetroParks, as well as The Ohio State Certified Master Naturalist course.
