Volunteer events

“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, August 6, 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!

 

This is a great way to support us at Little River Wetlands Project, and a local brewery. This venue is all ages, so children are welcome. If you don't enjoy beer, that's okay, they have plenty of good food and non-alcoholic beverages too.  

For questions, please email Maraiah Russell at m.russell@lrwp.org.
