Volunteer of the Week
Jinny Baeckler Museum of Life and Science
In the words of Uli Hartmond, the Director of the Butterfly House at the Museum of Life and Science, Jinny Baeckler is “awesome”!  Since relocating to our area, Jinny has “jumped into volunteering wholeheartedly”; she volunteers regularly as a docent for the Butterfly House and Insectarium and as a facilitator for special fundraising events.  She brings both professional experience with informal science education and a lifelong passion for teaching to her volunteer work, and she really understands how to present scientific facts in a way that resonates with her audience.  Jinny excels at communicating with both young and old visitors, vivaciously interpreting the exhibits and engaging guests in hands-on learning activities.  The Museum hosts 425,000 guests every year, and many of them are lucky enough to spend time with Jinny.  Thank you, Jinny, for the many hours you spend helping our Museum to carry out its mission!
