Consider a donation to the Friends of Whitefish Dunes
Feb 07, 2017

 Dear CLAA member

 
The CLAA executive committee has endorsed the Friends of Whitefish Dunes State Park campaign to fund a naturalist for the park during the summer of 2017. Donations are tax deductible and should be sent directly to the address listed below, by March 1st so the Friends can begin recruitment for this position.
 
The park has not had a full time naturalist since the end of 2015 when state funding for this position ceased. Last summer, donations allowed funding for a part time position.  The Friends hope to raise the $9000 needed to support the naturalist again this year, which is also the parks 50th anniversary.
 
The naturalist responsibilities include: interpretive and environmental programs and displays; leading nature hikes to educate visitors about the properties natural features, flora, fauna and environmental issues; invasive species identification, mapping and control; staffing the Nature Center including providing visitor nature related inquiries; and  developing displays, brochures , posters and exhibits.  Individuals, families, special interest groups, school groups and the general public have all benefited from our past park naturalists.
 
CLAA encourages you to donate but do not send questions or checks to us.
