2013 Schedule of Events

Jan 15, 2013 by

Mark your calendars!  We have planned our 2013 Friends of Glen Providence Park events for most months, including History & Nature Walks, three Volunteer Events, Citizen Science and our 2nd Annual Picnic.  We also have regular Invasive Plant Removals, and a Summer Afternoon Concert Series!

As we post details for each month, we will link to that event with information and logistics such as meeting location.  The rain dates are listed in italics.

All events are free and open to the public- we hope to see you at one of our events!
