BECOME A STEWART PARK VOLUNTEER
Dane County’s Stewart Lake Park was founded by caring, concerned and actively involved people. Individuals continue to play a significant role, many with the Friends of Stewart Park. There are any number of ways to get involved. Here are some excellent reasons why you might consider volunteering in Stewart Park:
- Organize educational programming to invite people of all ages to utilize the Park
- Maintain and improve Stewart Park’s physical setting
- Be an environmental steward
- Meet new people and build relationships
- Learn about Stewart Park and what it protects
- Improve personal health
- Spend time amidst the Park’s natural and cultural beauty
- Enhance work and volunteer experience
- Stimulate meaningful family activities
- Encourage kids to take ownership of the Park
In cooperation with Dane County Parks and Volunteer Coordinator, Rhea Stangel-Maier, the Friends of Stewart Park
offers volunteer opportunities for individuals of all ages, families with children, as well as service groups and clubs.
The Friends group sponsors “Work Days,” usually the 3rd Sunday afternoon of every month. We are also looking for people to join committees to work on other projects, especially educational programming such as nature walks, geo caching/stamp padding, bluebird habitat restoration, organizational duties such as creating a 501c3 non-profit status, and so on.
Whether you can spend an hour, a day or a season, you’re sure to find something to match your interests and help today’s visitors, and future generations, enjoy the Park.
If you are interested in volunteering, contact Friends of Stewart Park at: email@example.com or call Mary McDonough-Sutter at 608 437-5900 and we’ll respond quickly.
