This past weekend on September 13th, Keystone Science School staff and volunteers came together to take part in the 16th annual Summit County Make a Difference Day. While the national Make a Difference Day isn’t until October 25th, those of us in the high country know that winter comes very early up here and October is often too late to be working outside. This is why the county-wide event organizers decided to push the event forward this year in hopes of better weather. And it proved to be the right decision. Light breezes and sunny skies made for a beautiful day to be working outdoors.
Our intrepid volunteers joined us on campus to build trails, winterize campus, and do some much-needed weed pulling in the gardens. We’re so appreciative of the help and all the community support we receive throughout the year. Projects like these take more man power and time than we often have available to us, but they are things that need to get done and that make our campus and programs better for everyone who comes to KSS.
Thank you so much to all our volunteers who make KSS such a wonderful place to be!
