Yesterday, December 5, was International Volunteer Day. To celebrate, we’re taking this week’s Fridays in the Field post to honor our favorite heroes who are literally in the field: our volunteers!
This year was a big one for volunteering, as we added two new programs–rain garden plantings in Southington, CT, and water quality testing in Mamaroneck, NY–to our usual roster of coastal cleanups and habitat restoration plantings. We were excited to connect with so many new and enthusiastic volunteers in those communities, and look forward to working with them again!
In addition, dedicated volunteers and interns help out in our office year-round, helping us gather info, write newsletters, and staff events.
