Many special projects here at Ijams would simply never get done without volunteers. The Ijams staff can only do so much.
That's why we love it when Scripps/HGTV calls and wants to spend one of their Volunteer Days helping us. They usually come en masse with their sleeves rolled up ready to tackle something big, eager to help.
Yesterday, over 45 Scripps volunteers showed up to work on the new ropes course being constructed on the Hunter Site (western edge of Ijams near the overflow parking opposite the front gate).
That many people can get a lot done quickly, and for that we say "Thank you" over 45 times.
