Thanks to everyone for coming out for a beautiful day in
the city! Results
Give-Back Day a Success!
April 23, 2017
For our 3rd Give Back Day we had just 13 volunteers but we
got a lot done! Mostly honeysuckle and also some buckthorn
and multiflora rose. We may have gotten to the point where,
after 3 Give Back Days, the ranger can justify a controlled
burn, to get all the small regrowth left (and that should
take care of the really nasty thorns). Many thanks to Alan,
Tracy, Gordon, Dan, Anna, Kevin, Andrea, Raef, Steve, Chris,
Lise, Matthew, Madeline, and Ranger Jacob. We'll post pictures
on facebook soon!

No Experience Necessary
It takes a lot of volunteers to put on each orienteering
meet, but it doesn't take a lot of time to be a volunteer.
Volunteers are needed to help with registration, results,
control pickup, etc. The typical time commitment is 1 to 1.5
hours. We'll show you everything you need to know to help
out. Plus, you'll still have time to participate in the orienteering.
All volunteers will be eligible for the end-of-year banquet,
Please check the 'volunteer' box on your registration form,
and the meet director will be in contact with you.
