Donations of Goods: It’s best to discuss any intended gift of personal items with WNPS first. While your books, photos, office equipment, garden tools and even native plants might seem a beneficial match, sometimes WNPS cannot accommodate your wishes. If inopportune for WNPS, helpful suggestions may steer you to another organization that will appreciate your generosity.
Donations of Time and Talents: Being a WNPS volunteer is both a personal benefit and an opportunity to contribute your special skills. Please check our web site, newsletters, list serves, and with the office if you would like to get involved. The office needs helpers; weeds need removing; field trips need to be led; plants need propagating or salvaging; events need to be planned and staffed; schools appreciate volunteer educators; the newsletters want articles and artwork….just to name a few of the fun things that await your “Yes”.
