Twice a year, typically in July & January, we get a group of volunteers together to help us clean up, do projects, and organize. This is an excellent opportunity for groups (Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Rotary Clubs, Kiwanis Clubs, Honor Societies, etc.), families, or individuals over the age of 12 to get involved!
