Upcoming Events

At our last meeting we had a lively discussion with Ms. Helen Kuhns, Education and Outreach Coordinator for Lynnhaven River Now, about how Lynnhaven River Now got started 10 years ago and steps they took to be successful.  As our Outreach Committe co-chair wrote me afterwards "Dream Big and Set Clear Objectives".   And, thanks to the enthusiam of our volunteers and members, the Friends of Indian River have certainly set off on a road with ambitious goals.

Several upcoming events on this road include
- 6/23, 8am - Explore and Map Indian River Park
- 6/26, 7pm - Meeting of the Board to discuss organizing steps.   To attend, please RSVP to info@friendsofindianriver.org
