Honoree 2015 – Christy Porter

Congrats to Christy Porter for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!

Name:  Christy Porter

Nominating Organization:  OC Parks

Honoree Category:  Animals & Environment

Why Nominated:  Christy has been a dedicated volunteer at Upper Newport Bay for many years now. On a weekly basis you will find her set up at along a popular path around the Bay, to provide information, education and interpretation to visitors. In the afternoons, she provides front desk coverage at the Peter and Mary Muth Interpretive Center. Christy has shown long term dedication to Upper Newport Bay, having volunteered through the Newport Bay Conservancy since 2006. In that time she has contributed over 1,500 hours of service. Her presence is consistent, but flexible, as she is willing to change plans at the last minute to help out where ever is needed most.

When volunteering at the Muth Interpretive Center, Christy goes above and beyond normal “coverage”. Her warm personality engages visitors as she takes the extra time to educate and inspire visitors to explore the park further. Without Christy’s volunteer time, we would not be able to provide the high level of visitor interaction that we currently do. She is one of our most valuable assets here at Upper Newport Bay and the Peter and Mary Muth Interpretive Center.

Please write a note of congratulations below!
