Our 2021 Friends of Glen Providence Park events include nature walks, volunteer days, citizen science, and hopefully Arts in the Park! We also have a regular Friday morning Conservation Crew – email us at FriendsoftheGlen@gmail.com to join us. It’s our 10th Anniversary year, and we are glad to be able to have events when they can be held safely.

COVID notice: All of our events will follow the latest COVID protocols. All will require masks and physical distancing, and most will have attendance limits with email pre-registration required. All events are subject to change or cancellation due to COVID.

See the individual events in our Calendar for more information and logistics. All events are family-friendly and free to pre-registered participants. We hope to see you in the park!
