Record-Breaking Year of Volunteering in Support of the Forest!


From Beth Clifton (FAIS Forest Manager) and Krissy Clifton ‘20 (FAIS Forest Project Assistant)


Earlier this month, the goal of the Girl Scout Troop 10080 Take Action project was 50 volunteers and 15 Middle School students. Their goal was surpassed! 


We had 64 volunteers and 20 Middle School students!! Thank you to Nora, Sarah, Charlee and Chloe for their extra effort in making our year-end work party a huge success and making it feel like a celebration with the decorated seed gift bags at the end.


With the help of 445 volunteers and “forest fairies” of all ages, we reached 900 volunteer hours in the FAIS forest for the 2021-22 school year. What an invaluable asset our forest is for our community, and it’s thanks to the enthusiasm and hard work of our amazing volunteers!


We will begin preparing in August to prepare the forest to welcome groups of students in September. FAIS families: stay tuned for an announcement in Family News to mark your calendars!
