September Newsletter

Goodbye, summer! We had a blast this season and look forward to more great events over the fall and winter. Now that the busy season is over, we will be changing gears and going into work mode. There will be plenty of volunteer activities to come out and help with in the next few months. Keep an eye out for them on our facebook page.

Whatever Floats 2018

The Whatever Floats event held by the Park Naturalist was a great hit! We plan to make it bigger and better next year.
A big thank you to those that came out and volunteered with the event and hot dog sale. That was a success too.
