Volunteer Orientation and Workday
Amboy Marsh Nature Preserve
November 18 9am to 1pm
How many hours will I be expected to commit? What exactly will I be doing? Do I need any particular skills? How soon can I start? How will I know what needs to be done?
Experienced and new volunteers are encouraged to attend the Amboy Marsh Nature Preserve Volunteer Orientation and Workday on Saturday, November 18, 2017. The event will begin at 9 a.m. with a welcome and update on what’s been happening on the ground at Amboy Marsh. From 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. we will tackle a project. After that everyone will enjoy complimentary lunch while learning about volunteer opportunities, basic policies and sanctuary rules plus lots of ways to get involved. If you are currently a volunteer at Amboy Marsh or would like to consider helping please join us. Attendance is limited. Please RSVP to Deb Carey at [email protected] before November 15. This event is made possible by a generous grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation in commitment to broadening the awareness of natural areas in Illinois.
