Consider Fort Williams Park for an altruistic boost! The Fort Williams Park Foundation is an organization that relies heavily on individuals and groups in the community, and our volunteer programs have been an amazing success. It’s because of our volunteers that we’ve made such impressive progress toward the suppression of invasive plants in the Park. As a foundation, we want to promote volunteerism for all of our local non-profits and for the health of our public lands and the community.
The Fort Williams Park Foundation is always looking for individuals, families and small groups to join our Adopt-a-Plot program to help maintain Arboretum plantings in the Park. Work involves weeding, mulching and edging. Gardening experience is helpful, but not necessary! Plots are generally small, but vary in size, and guidance for caring for your specific plot will be provided by the Foundation’s landscape gardener. Adopters can work when it’s convenient for their schedules.
To sign up, contact Calie Ramisch at firstname.lastname@example.org and schedule a time to tour available plots at Cliffside and Lighthouse View, the two completed Arboretum sites along the Cliff Walk. Or reserve a spot to begin maintaining the new Children’s Garden this summer! For information about other volunteer opportunities at Fort Williams Park, please visit our volunteer page .
