Cedar Bog group seeks help


Urbana

Cedar Bog seeking volunteers

Residents interested in volunteering at the Cedar Bog Nature Preserve are asked to attend an open house from 7 to 8 p.m. Monday, April 22. There are opportunities for those who can volunteer either weekly, or only once a month, or just for special events.

The Cedar Bog Association now has one part-time employee, and the remaining work is managed by volunteers. Available opportunities could include maintenance, operations and greeting visitors, or serving as a trained naturalist or tour guide. The Cedar Bog Association will also accept help from college or high school students looking for community service hours.

Those interested in becoming a volunteer naturalist are asked to sign up at the open house. Naturalists are trained, and several lectures and workshops are scheduled this summer. Residents interested in being a naturalist are also asked to attend an interpretation class from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 4. Cedar Bog is located at 980 Woodburn Road, Urbana. For more information, residents are asked to call 937-484-3744 or email cedarbog@ctcn.net. STAFF REPORT
