Stewardship Series 2018

Little Forks’ Stewardship Coordinator, Sara, is excited to expand the workshop series she started last year as an AmeriCorps member.

“We had three workshops surrounding stewardship last summer and it was a success!” said Sara “I look forward to developing this program further in the future.”

This summer we will provide four workshops covering a variety of topics that were chosen based on a survey sent around to volunteers.
