What a win, win, win project. Nature gets a restoration boost...we get to partner with local volunteer groups...we get to participate in a family frendly project.
We meet the FIRST and THIRD Thursday of each month at 7am meeting at Café Sheilagh, 1043 Hwy 99 N in Cottage Grove. There's ample parking in front and in the adjacent parking lot to the north, the meeting space can hold up to 50, and we'll be able to order breakfast off the menu. See you there!
