2015 Schedule of Events

Jan 13, 2015 by

Mark your calendars for our 2015 Friends of Glen Providence Park events, including nature walks, three volunteer events, citizen science, and events for kids! We also have regular Invasive Plant Removal days, and we’re planning our Summer Afternoon Concert Series – stay tuned for dates!

As we post details for each month, we will link to that event with information and logistics.  All events are free and open to the public – we hope to see you at one of our events in the park’s 80th anniversary year!
