Kiosk volunteers welcome visitors to Sycamore Grove Park, make changes as needed for the parking machine, sell annual parking passes, keep a tally of how many visitors enter the park, and answer questions from the public. Volunteers are trained to use a communications radio to advise rangers of any problems they become aware of. Ideal kiosk volunteers are folks who already have familiarity with Sycamore Grove Park and can commit to working at least one 2 to 4-hour shift most months of the year. Volunteers who can work multiple shifts a month are highly desired. Those interested in becoming kiosk volunteers will join a ranger for a one-to-two hour training session and then will join an experienced kiosk volunteer for their first few shifts.
LARPD Rangers teamed up with the National Charity League to remove invasive plants from Sycamore Grove Park! An awesome group of mothers and daughters spending part of their weekend with us!
The fire at Sycamore Grove Park in August 2020 damaged and burned several Oak Trees. A dedicated group of volunteers has been hiking out once a month to the burned area to observe and record the recovery of these trees. Volunteers plan to share their findings next Summer when they complete their documentation.
For now, they are looking forward to the Fall/Winter and are hoping for some rain to see how the trees rebound next Spring. Check out this short video to see these volunteers in action!
