Thank you to all of our volunteers!
Your actions sustain GLC!
Each year, volunteers put in hundreds of hours maintaining trails; opening and closing the field station; putting the dock in and taking it out; painting and maintaining the building; cleaning shoreline; taking photos; preparing mailings, maintaining a database; creating signage, baking goodies; planning programs; writing grants; monitoring water; balancing the budget; tidying the cabin; opening their homes for programs; assisting at programs; maintaining the website; watching the lake; assembling notecards; editing, folding, and stuffing newsletters; and generally pitching in.
And this year a special “thank you” goes to…
