The Bong Naturalist Association is a group of volunteers promoting conservation, education and recreation at Richard Bong State Recreation Area. 

You are invited to the Grand Opening ceremony for the Nature Explore Classroom! 

There will be a ceremony, silent auction and refreshments as well as a ribbon cutting with lots of time to play in the Nature Explore Classroom. 

You are invited to help build the Nature Explore Classroom!

We hope to have most of the classrooms completed by the Grand Opening date but there is much to do before then.  To accomplish this, a series of workdays has been set.  You may come to one or all of them, stay the whole time or just for short time.  We are especially looking for people skilled in construction, carpentry, grading, path installation and landscaping though there will something for everyone to do. If you have a skid loader or other small construction equipment you can bring to operate, that would be extremely helpful!    

Please call Beth Goeppinger at (262) 878=5607 or e-mail at Elizabeth.Goeppinger@wi.gov with questions. 

Meet at the Visitor Center for all workdays.  You will not need a park sticker while volunteering.
