Volunteering

Members with all types of skills are needed to administer the corporation, organize and run events, and work on park projects. Donations and funds raised by the Friends are used exclusively for the benefit of the park - they supplement the park budget and fund projects, education programs, and community outreach activities. If you care about the park, nature, outdoor recreation, and environmental education, there is no better way to involved than becoming a Friend.
