ARC Wild events couldn't happen without an amazing team of volunteers. Volunteers help set up events, manage the crowds and some are in training to be future educators. Our volunteer crew includes: Cassandra Beck of Seneca, John Welborn of Topeka, Carol Nickelson of Sabetha and Art Malott of Robinson.


ARC Wild's medical team includes Dr. Melissa Detweiler of the Bern Sabetha Veterinary Clinic and Dr. Robert Shipman with Gage Animal Hospital in Topeka.

James McNary is the Vice President of ARC Wild Inc. He is in charge of maintenance, construction of enclosures and keeping his wife Sherri out of trouble. He works for Wenger Manufacturing and manages the family farm. 

Did you know that 100% of ARC Wild's educators are volunteers?

Sherri McNary is the Director of ARC Wild Inc. In 2016 she began volunteering at the Topeka Zoo & Conservation Center. She loved the work so much she decided to bring the opportunity to youth in northeast Kansas. Today, she works as an education staff member of the Topeka Zoo and as a Communications Specialist with Community Care Network of Kansas.
