(Helena, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) and the Montana Conservation Corps’ Veterans Green Corps (mtcorps.org) invite the public to join in on a Community Volunteer Day on Thursday, July 19 from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Work will include restoring and re-painting the mews (raptor housing) at FWP’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center; and, re-staining the fishing pier at Spring Meadow Lake State Park.
The Montana Wildlife Center rehabilitates orphaned wildlife for the purpose of release back to the wild, while offering visitors opportunities to learn about wildlife and the natural world in a community facility specifically designed for conservation education.
Spring Meadow Lake State Park is located on the western edge of Helena. It is an urban day-use park and is a popular spot for family afternoons of swimming, sunbathing, fishing, birdwatching, and having fun.
Volunteers of all ages and abilities are welcome and no experience is necessary. Volunteers should bring a water bottle and wear clothes appropriate for working outside.
A free volunteer lunch along with networking opportunities for Helena-area veterans will take place at the Spring Meadow Lake State Park Pavilion from 12:00pm to 1:00pm.
