Harris Beach State Park rangers need 20 volunteers 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., Jan. 17, 2022, to help create a better wildlife corridor for animals that live in and near the park.
The work party will remove brush, plants and limbs from around a fence that surrounds the campground. Rangers will then remove the barbed wire barrier so wildlife can move freely and safely through the area.
Volunteers must register in advance and registration ends Jan. 10. Hand tools and other equipment will be provided when they arrive at the park. Volunteers must be at least 14 years old, be able to work with hand tools and move on gravel and uneven surfaces. Please bring your own gloves and wear clothes suitable for the weather conditions.
Jan. 17 is Martin Luther King Day and a designated national day of service, as well as the kickoff for the 100 Volunteer Projects for 100 Years series. Visit the event calendar to see the other volunteer opportunities scheduled in 2022. Join the events and participate in the legacy of service that has sustained the state parks system for the past century.
