Using artifact carts to share animal, habitat, and conservation information with guests on grounds during the course of the day, for on-grounds events, and occasionally at off-grounds community events*
*During COVID, this role has been modified to allow volunteers to maintain social distancing. Champions use animal fact sheets to answer guest questions and provide quick information in a way that engages but also encourages movement to prevent gathering. Masks are required for all guests, volunteers and staff while on grounds, and this role allows for social distancing when needed.
