Volunteer Appreciation Day is held 10 a.m. the first Monday of every month.

It was a little snowy this morning, but the volunteers who were able to attend Volunteer Appreciation Day were rewarded with some delicious Casey’s breakfast pizza!

We discussed the new glacial trail exhibit now under construction inside the Dickinson County Nature Center, as well as a few other things under What’s New:

  1. Pollinator Education series: The new Pollinator Education Series begins 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 22, and will also be held March 22 and April 26 at the nature center. Come to learn about native pollinators and how you can help by planting pollinator-friendly species.
  2. Great Backyard Bird Count: Participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count Feb. 16-19. Learn more here.
  3. Closed: The Dickinson County Nature Center will be closed Monday, Feb. 19, for the President’s Day holiday.
  4. Pollinator Paradise: Funds are still being raised for the exhibits inside the new Pollinator Paradise addition to the nature center. Some exhibits have been ordered, as funds allow, and will be installed this spring.

The next Volunteer Appreciation Day will be held 10 a.m. Monday, March 5, at the nature center!
