  1. Studebaker Letters Clean-Up Volunteer Days

    June 26, 2021, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Studebaker Letters

    We are in need of volunteers to help with the clean-up of the Studebaker Letters. Volunteers will be needed to drag downed branches and limbs from the letters to designated areas so they can be hauled away. Please wear long pants, gloves, and a long-sleeved shirt as you may be exposed to poison ivy. Sturdy closed-toed shoes are also recommended. Bring water and a picnic lunch if you wish to eat afterward. Please park in the parking lot south of the Glenn Bauer Shelter. If you are able to attend any of these volunteer work days, please contact Andrea Willamowski at awillamowski@sjcparks.org or give her a call at 574-654-3155. You are more than welcome to bring family members and friends with you. Please let Andrea know how many will be coming by June 4, 11, 18 & 25th. This is a great way to get outdoors and social distance to boot!
