VOLUNTEER

Seven volunteers from Wooster Kiwanis, led by Craig Sanders, constructed 30 boardwalk sections on Saturday, May 7th.  Hauling the sections into the muddy woods was three scouts, led by leaders Dave Seymour and Belle Troyer from Apple Creek Scout Troop #69.  The sections were made in less than 2 hours but it took another hour to place them in the woods. Good Job and thank you Wooster Kiwanis and Apple Creek Scout Troop #69 and all the other volunteers that were there helping with the event.  

 

The Park District plans on building 50 more sections over the summer.  Watch this website for details.  We LOVE volunteers and depend on them!

THANK YOU TO….

THANK YOU TO OUR PHOTOGRAPHERS!

During this period of waiting for spring and all that is to come, we thank them for continuing to capture the winter life- its beauty and serenity of the Barnes Preserve.  These are just a few of the furred and feathered characters captured by their lenses.  

Thank you for the pics Janet Welty, Brian Miller, B. Meese, B. Miller, and Suzanne Lux, and Dan Lux!

We hope you will consider volunteering to help us keep the Barnes Preserve looking great! We invite all ages that are able to help out.

If you have a skill or are comfortable with a certain piece of equipment, please let us know. Chainsaws are sometimes needed throughout spring, summer, and fall as large trees are downed by the wind.

Check out the pictures below – great volunteers have been instrumental in getting the Barnes Preserve developed and maintained!
