VOL: Volunteer Newsletter – 12/2018

NationalParkWith the snow and calendar flipping to December, it feels safe to call it winter. The start of winter means a shift in activities more suited to outdoor winter fun! Dust off the wool socks, boots, coats, and snow-pants and come join us outside. As part of the the quest to provide a more robust year-round suite of programs and events, the Winter River pilot field trip program is creating a flurry of excitement.
