People may also request to be approved as a park volunteer to help with funded projects or to assist the park with its own initiatives, such as tree planting, prairie burns, or the removal of invasive plants. Of course, the park’s own initiatives will be performed under the direction and supervision of personnel from the state Department of Natural Resources, who will also provide any needed training, equipment and government approvals and notifications. Each volunteer for a park initiative will be listed in the combined listserv for Friends of Waubonsie (and Blackburn) State Park for ease of communication and may be invited to participate in projects from both parks.
Inquiries about funded projects, volunteer initiatives, or the Friends group may be directed to one of the following representatives:
