Volunteer Shares Multitude of Skills
Daryl has been a volunteer at the Jeffers Petroglyphs since 2002. He has assisted with a variety of programs and events over the years, but especially the Atlatl Program in which he showed people how to make and throw darts using atlatls. He has helped with Flintknapping events by demonstrating his skills in creating projectile points. He developed and led many homeschool events. He created items to sell in the gift shop such as spears, arrows, atlatls and games. He also created a website, educational materials, and a Buffalo Hunter Certificate that we hand out to visitors.
Jeffers Petroglyphs has benefited because of the time he has spent preparing materials and sharing his knowledge and skills over the years.
