Our core team of dedicated volunteers makes the work we do for Forest Park possible, whether by planting bulbs, assisting visitors or helping in the office or at special events. To honor this group, we held our annual Volunteer Appreciation Reception last month in the Dennis & Judith Jones Visitor and Education Center. Guests enjoyed dinner, drinks and dessert, a photo booth and some Forest Park-themed trivia.
We were thrilled to report that 2016 has been our strongest year of volunteerism ever, with more than 1,500 volunteers donating more than 11,500 hours of service through October!
