In 2017, our volunteers once again surpassed expectation. During the year, we held 10 formal pre-announced work days. Our work included:
- Wildlife and Respite Garden maintenance
- Control of Japanese Knotweed, an invasive plant that threatens the park’s ecological health
- Planting new native shrubs in the low lying areas of the park in an effort to reduce mud
Seventeen of our members participated in these work days. Including additional help from several young people fulfilling community service requirements, we logged a total of 134 volunteer work hours for the year! Thanks a million to member volunteers Judy and Yair Argon, Ellen Briggs, Paula Burns, David and Tal Coren, Rich Cutshall, Michelle Detwiler, Pinkie Hamilton, Karen Hinckley, Tessa Lamont Siegel, June Lauer, Max Perelman, Linda Pitt, Ellen Reese, Cary Sellers, and Elaine Stern for all their hard work. We also had a number of non-official work days so our actual volunteer work hours probably total around 160.
