Awards for Friends of LBA Woods


Saturday August 19–The Friends of LBA Woods received two awards yesterday at the volunteer appreciation picnic hosted by the Park Stewardship Program staff in Priest Point Park. The program supervisor, Sylvana Niehuser, presented the awards and thanked the Friends of LBA Woods not only for its work in the LBA Woods but also its campaign to establish a Metropolitan Park District in Olympia to help fund our park needs for the future.

While the Friends of LBA Woods is the formal name of the stewardship group that has adopted the LBA Woods (and is spearheaded by Bob Wadsworth), the friends of LBA Woods includes the hundreds of members of the LBA Woods Park Coalition, its leadership team; and all the wonderful members of our community who advocated for saving the LBA Woods, who have volunteered at our work parties, and who have served as unofficial caretakers of the woods for years.

Kudos and thanks to every friend and to the Park Stewardship staff, City Council members, City Staff, PARC Foundation, too!
