Give Back to the Park at Friends Volunteer Events
Each year, there are five Volunteer Event Days when the Friends give back to the park.
- I Love My Park Day (Red House, 2022)
- National Public Lands Day (Quaker, 2022)
- Three Other Friends Volunteer Days
Quaker and Red House alternate each year for their Volunteer Days and national holidays. Volunteers first meet in one of two locations, where the Friends may get a head count, delegate tasks, share objectives, and most importantly, find out where to meet for the 1:00 PM Friends Picnic.
We engage, rain or shine, so please plan and dress appropriately. It’s a good idea to bring work a hat, gloves, bug repellent, a poncho, if necessary, personal drinking water, and even basic landscaping tools such as leaf and hard rakes, round shovels, loppers, bow saws, etc. Every every camper came prepared with some of these items, we can accomplish to beautify the park right before, as well as during peak park season.
Where: Volunteers meet at either Quaker General Store (Quaker) or Red House Wetlands (Red House)
When: 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM on Volunteer Event Days
