Thank You Volunteers!
By Kate Simmons, Community Relations Coordinator
April is National Volunteer Month with the week of April 19th – 25th designated as National Volunteer Appreciation Week so we want to take a moment to show some love to a great group of people. Volunteers make the world go around & we couldn’t do what we do without the support of our amazing team of volunteers.
Pottawattamie Conservation Volunteers really do it all! Each year volunteers head to the parks to assist staff with projects ranging from park maintenance, to educational programming, to guest services. Each one of these dedicated volunteers works to make sure your visit to your county parks is a great one & the hours they contribute annually are invaluable to Pottawattamie Conservation.
We want to thank everyone who logged volunteer hours with the county in 2019. These volunteers do it all, they help in a myriad of ways & fill positions like campground host, welcome desk, public programming, HawkWatcher, & board member. Together they logged over 4,000 hours of volunteer time with Pottawattamie Conservation & the Pottawattamie Conservation Foundation during the 2019 calendar year.
