We have just a few quick updates as October comes to a close:
Our fundraising drive with donation matching ends on October 31st. Friends have donated $780 so far this month - a bit more than half of the 1-for-1 matching funds we have available. Will you donate before the match period ends on October 31st? Several generous donors have contributed to a matching grant of up of $1250. This means if you give now, your donation will be doubled!
We are still in touch with the National Park Service about volunteering in the Park. At this point, it looks like COVID-19 restrictions will keep us from holding a Work Party in the Fall. We will hope restrictions will ease in time for a Spring Work Party, including planting our Demonstration Garden. In the meantime, the Friends Board will do some minor maintenance of the planters to put them to bed for the fall - with proper masking and physical distance, of course!
Remember the park survey you took in August? We learned from NPS that the Cultural Landscape Inventory, which includes the survey feedback we provided as users of the Park, is drafted and under review by NPS staff. The final report should be completed toward the end of the year, and we will share the report as soon as we have it.
Thank you for your continued support of the Park!
