We Get By With A Little Help...
On June 20, 2016, thirty volunteers from Baxter, led by Laurie Fulton, came to help with the annual spring clean up. For three plus hours, in the 95 degree heat, the volunteers, along with Janine Vasica, Hayley Janney, Dawn Smith, and Michelle Connolly, weeded and mulched most of the 24 pods in the Nature Center. Without the help of the Baxter volunteers, this project would have taken the small committee months to complete.
Thank you so much Baxter for your help keeping our Nature Center beautiful for the students and the community to enjoy!
