“Our Project Plaza Fund Raising
Event was achieved in December 2022
Working on the construction of Friends Forever Wall
We hope to have it completed as soon as weather permits.

Our goal was to raise $15,000 to help build this project. Project Plaza will include an expansion of the outdoor area west of the Visitor Center, providing a larger area for gatherings and program presentations. The plan is to finish building the Wall portion of the project Spring of 2023. At that time, we will roll out the Friends Forever Wall opportunities.
