Volunteer Spotlight: Mary Sidlowski

Mary has been a generous contributor of her time to the National Aquarium since 1992. Although she may have lost count of the number of native grasses she's planted or mailings she's assisted with, her dedication to our mission is never lost on us! Here's to Mary and all of our volunteers...without you, we would truly be lost.
