Past Projects

Family Fun Day

George R. Childs Park 

At the end of every summer, the Friends help DWGNRA host the park's annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. 

After an intensive three-year restoration process, Childs Park was re-opened to the public in 2013. Friends funding helped to rehabilitate well-worn footpaths, as well as the scenic bridges spanning the river.

In addition to staffing the park's annual Family Fun Day, the Friends help organize a variety of events. 2018's Family Fun Day included a live raptor presentation and shad fishing demonstration.
