Vegetation Surveys/Volunteers Needed
Believe it or not, rain caused a cancellation of the vegetation surveys scheduled in June.  We are now rescheduling for Sunday, July 13 and could definitely use some volunteers to assist.  While we can certain use volunteers who are able to identify the vegetation, we also need volunteers to simply assist with taking down the data on the survey forms.  If you are interested in helping with the survey (and experiencing the beauty of the prairie first-hand), please contact Diane Sherrill at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to confirm and for details.


Writer Volunteer Needed 
We also are looking for a volunteer with writing experience to prepare a written history of the restoration project.  We do not have any comprehensive narrative in existence, much less available on our website or on request.  We are looking for someone with good writing and organizational skills with the ability to write descriptively and cohesively.  Detailed knowledge of the project is not necessary as we will make available information and key participants will be available for interviews.  The end result will be posted on our website and elsewhere (possibly in connection with grants) and, of course, the writer will be credited.  There is no timeline on completion, so the volunteer can work at his/her own pace.  We would estimate 20-25 hours to complete the project, but that is up to the volunteer.  If you are interested or know anyone who might be interested (this could be a good project for a college student), please send a note to us at this email address: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
