“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”

Margaret Mead

Volun-beer with us the first Thursday of every month!

Thursday, October 10, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm 

Thursday, November 7, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Thursday, December 5, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Join us at Hop River Brewing Company, 1515 N Harrison St, Fort Wayne IN 46808, for an evening of stewardship and volunteering! We will be "bumping up" seedlings to larger, more accommodating pots that will eventually be planted at Eagle Marsh. There will be seedlings available to take home as well.

Don't want to get your hands dirty? We also need help preparing materials for community events! Whatever your preference, we appreciate your time and help.

Support a local non-profit and a local brewery while having fun with family and friends!

This is a family friendly event, all ages are welcome!

For questions, please email Maraiah Russell at m.russell@lrwp.org or Aly Munger at a.munger@lrwp.org.

Volunteer Appreciation Event

Please join us for a night where we get to serve you! Join us for a pizza party at our office, as we discuss all the amazing work you did over the year, and what we would like to do in 2020. Plus, we will hand out the awards for all the hard work you have done throughout 2019. You’re welcome to bring along your family.


Please RSVP to Maraiah Russell at m.russell@lrwp.org, or by calling 260-478-2515, by November 6.


Hope you can make it to this laid back and fun event put on just for you!
