Rush-Henrietta's Life Skills Volunteer Program visits the Nature Park

We were pleased to have Rush Henrietta Senior High School's Life Skills Volunteer Program come to the nature center to help out with miscellaneous gardening projects around the park. They helped weed the pond and gardens around the nature center, and also planted flowers around the Tinker Homestead sign on Calkins Road. Overall they volunteered more than 30 hours! Thank you to teacher Laura Robinson, Teacher's Aide Janice Jones and students Chutney Gibson-Foster, Matthew Lane, Precious Payne and Katie Sorber for all of their help! The gardens and pond look beautiful.
