Annual Volunteer Appreciation Party ~ September 14, 2017, 5 – 7pm
Please Join us for our Annual event where we celebrate YOU! Volunteers are our foundation ~ last year, we had over 500 volunteers donate over 13,000 hours to the Friends! To honor your hard work and dedication, we are hosting a Volunteer Appreciation Party on Thursday, Sept. 14 from 5-7 pm at our Native Plant Nursery. All current volunteers are invited to join us for a fun evening of music, dinner, and locally produced beverages.
Not yet a volunteer but curious what we do? Aspiring volunteers are welcome too! Come check out our nursery, meet our staff and volunteers, and find out how you can put your passions and talents to work with the Friends. We have volunteers at every level of our organization, from data entry to trail building, from event support to habitat restoration ~ volunteers truly help us power our programs. Come see how much fun it is to be a part of the stewardship community of this beautiful place!
Music: We are very excited to announce that we will have Bluegrass music provided by Sugar Creek, featuring members from the Sugar Beets and Opal Creek!
Thank you to our generous local businesses supporters & sponsors for helping us appreciate our volunteers!
