2018 held some memorable community events that we will cherish for years to come.
In May, we kicked off strong with Art in the Open Air. Local artists came to be inspired by the beauty that is SHADOW, creating varied forms of art right on the grounds! The finished art proudly hung in the Richter Education Center until sold. Funds from art sales directly supported SHADOW Lake Nature Preserve and local artists.
SHADOW attended more outreach events than ever before. Getting out into our community we gained understanding of needs, opportunities, and partnerships. We loved seeing you outside of the bog at over 10 events summer-wide!
In total, 242 volunteers donated well over 1,500 hours of service on SHADOW’s grounds, in our office, and in our community, in 2018!
