Celebrating the 24th annual Spring Clean-up Weekend

On May 7 and 8, more than 90 volunteers joined us for the annual Spring Clean-up Weekend. Together we cleaned and rehabilitated campsites, planted trees, built boardwalks and kiosks, and more. We also kicked off our 30th anniversary celebration. Thanks to everyone who joined us! Check out the Facebook album for more photos.

Special thanks to Alyssa Courtney, age 11, for submitting her report of the weekend:
