Volunteer Appreciation


This September, thirty-eight volunteers were honored for their service to WCFPD. The diverse group of individuals were recognized a volunteer appreciation picnic which highlighted the contributions of time, talent and expertise. Over 1,000 hours of volunteer activity was logged on WCFPD events and projects in 2013. If you are interested in helping with site stewardship, environmental education events, Eagle Scout projects, guided hikes or special events in the forest preserves, we welcome you to join in helping people discover the nature of life.
