September Contest

Over the month of September we have a little incentive to get more people out in nature! Tell your friends, families, co-workers, neighbours - anyone you know - to volunteer with us, and when they do, you will be entered into a draw to win a fantastic basket of items from environmentally friendly companies! You can decide to share it with your friend/family/coworker/neighbour or keep it all to yourself! Please remember to tell them to tell me that you told them about the activity!
