Description

These gatherings are an opportunity to provide Volunteer Leaders to meet with their Regional Ecologist, Project Management and Volunteer Resources staff. The plan is to gather for about an hour to talk about regional common issues and answer questions, etc. Afterwards, we will then walk the site with the local Site Steward and the Ecologist to further discuss specific site issues, successes, and volunteer accomplishments. 

This is a great opportunity to learn more about a specific Forest Preserve and enjoy it amongst volunteer colleagues.  We hope that you can make it to your regional meeting and you are more than welcomed to attend other regional meetings as well!
