Oakland Zoo - Teen Wild Guides

Teen Wild Guides

Every weekend Teen Volunteers also known as (TWGS) come to the children's zoo to tell the public about the animals depending on which station they are at; Bats, Goat Barn, Gators, Bugs, Rad Room, Otters, Lemurs, and occasionally Face Painting in the Children's Zoo, or working at the Sun Bear or Chimp Stations. The age range is 12½–18 years.

Famous quotes containing the words guides, teen and/or wild:

    We love the indomitable bellicose patriotism that sets you apart; we love the national pride that guides your muscularly courageous race; we love the potent individualism that doesn’t prevent you from opening your arms to individualists of every land, whether libertarians or anarchists.
    Tommaso Marinetti (1876–1944)

    Children ... after a certain age do not welcome parental advice. Occasionally, they may listen to another adult, which is why perhaps people should switch children with their neighbors and friends for a while in the teen years!
    Marian Wright Edelman (20th century)

    I never saw a wild thing
    Sorry for itself.
    A small bird will drop frozen dead
    From a bough
    Without ever having felt sorry for itself.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
