Volunteer Spotlight, Irene Librach
Irene Librach is a volunteer with the Sebastian Inlet State Park Show Team, and 2 days a week she puts on her hat to work as south side Park Watch. She greatly enjoys life in Sebastian, Florida after moving here from Allentown, Pennsylvania.
When asked why she volunteers, she quickly replies, “It’s such an awesome park, why wouldn’t I? What more could you want than being outside all the time and meeting new people?!” She also enjoys riding her bicycle, especially on the Jungle Trail. She hikes, kayaks, and reads. She finds sea-glass and sea-beans on the beach and makes jewelry. She also makes cards with friends from her women’s group.
Irene first heard about volunteering at Sebastian Inlet when she attended an Earth Day celebration in April of 2016. It was there she visited the booth set up by the show team. She signed up to be a volunteer and help to spread the word about the difference volunteers can make at parks.
Her favorite sight to see at the park is the dolphins racing through the inlet. Her only regret? She wasn’t working the day the Right Whales visited Sebastian Inlet State Park. But she knows that each day she’s at the inlet is a chance to see something new and exciting, which keeps her coming back week after week.
