Volunteer Appreciation Week 2020

In honor of our first Virtual Volunteer Appreciation Week, we want to offer a heartfelt thank you to all our volunteers who supported the Preserve over the past year.

Although we are unable to celebrate in person this year, we are dedicating this week, November 30th to December 4th, to thanking our volunteers virtually for your service and commitment to the Preserve. Volunteers are essential to the work we do here every day of the year.

During this week, we will be showing our appreciation of you in a variety of ways. Please look for messages of thanks from Mohonk Preserve staff in your email inbox, on our Facebook page, and right here on this page. And please, save the date to join us for the premiere of our Virtual Volunteer Awards Celebration on December 4th at 6:00 PM.
