Donna Riner, Assistant Manager, Eagle Creek Park Ornithology Center

I started working with Indy Parks as an environmental education camp counselor at Eagle Creek Park’s Earth Discovery Center in 2020 and 2021. As a camp counselor, I taught kids ages 4-15 about nature while leading activities such as hiking, canoeing, fishing, and archery. I loved this job so much that after my second summer ended, I interviewed for a Naturalist position at the Ornithology Center and got hired to teach public programs and help year-round with nature education lessons! In August of 2022, I became the Assistant Park Manager at the Ornithology Center, where I am now responsible for planning summer camp fun, supporting a team of naturalists, and assisting with the daily care and training of the birds of prey who live at the Ornithology Center. I love my job with Indy Parks because I use my unique skills and talents to pursue my passion for environmental education and I get to work with animals daily! I highly recommend applying for a job within Indy Parks, as there are so many opportunities to learn and serve the community.
