Head coach Steketee shared her thoughts on the volunteer experience.

"A group of nine from Nevada Swimming & Diving volunteered at the Animal Ark over the weekend.  We worked on the Bear Rehab Enclosure for orphaned cubs to use this winter and spring.  For the most part, we used branches and sticks burned in a fire in the late 1990s to build a wall so that the bears can't see visitors; Animal Ark doesn't want the cubs to become too humanized...the goal is to release them into the wild," she said.

Nevada swimming and diving has made an impact on the community this Fall, led by first-year head coach Abby Steketee. To date, the Wolf Pack has worked at the Reno Balloon Races, the Tough Mudder and now with Animal Ark since athletes arrived on campus in August.
