Jennifer Jellen last week was named the 2012 Ambassador-of-the-Year by the Teton Raptor Center. Jellen was praised for not only caring for the birds, but also sharing her love for them with others. Since she took Raptor Basics last fall, a class that introduces new volunteers to the birds, raptor husbandry and TRC protocols for handling and treatment, Jellen has presented educational programs for TRC, as well as served as a member of the “RaptorFest” committee, helping with logistics and sponsorships for TRC’s annual community celebration of birds of prey on Father’s Day. Meanwhile, Barbara Arnett was presented Golden Owl Award. That award was initiated last year to celebrate the unsung heroes of Teton Raptor Center – individuals who “give a hoot,” most often behind the scenes.
