  • Volunteer Appreciation

    Date: November 12, 2022


    Throughout the year our volunteers dig ditches, remove fences, drive hundreds of miles to (and through) Black Rock, and endure hot/cold/torrential winds to make sure our conservation events are successful.

    This is the time of year the team at Friends of Black Rock gets to express gratitude in the form of fun events and small gifts/prizes to our amazing volunteers!
