Volunteer! Fence & Perimeter Beautification at Barker Woods

December 24, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CST

Join us for a Christmas Eve workday at Barker Woods to beautify the exterior fence and perimeter of this great little “pocket preserve” in Michigan City!
We will be picking up litter and removing vines from the fence to enhance the outward-facing ambience and sense of welcoming and safety for our visitors and neighbors.
We will provide all the necessary equipment and gear, as well as granola bars and water, although we encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle.
Please dress appropriately for the weather! Feel free to stay for as little or long as you’d like.
So that we can best plan for the event, please RSVP by calling the office at 219-242-8558 or emailing Volunteer Coordinator Christine Maloney at For information about last minute cancellations, please check Facebook.
