November Work Week Progress

The November Work Week crew did a fantastic job of cleaning up and restoring Forfar Field Station after Hurricane Matthew's visit.
IFS sends a grateful thank you to volunteers Alan and Pamela Curtis, Joe Starzynski, William Donato, Willie Zamora, Annah Ellingston, Jonisha Cartwright, Marlin and Cynthia White, and Nina Sanchez.

What did our hardworking volunteers accomplish? 
Nina and Jonisha from BREEF (Bahamas Reef Environmental Education Foundation) are shown in the photo above cleaning out one of the vans. Additional tasks accomplished: restored many of the garden beds, cleaned the bonfire area, added sand to the volleyball court, and fixed the shutters on the buildings damaged by the  hurricane. Volunteers painted Big Boat, chainsawed and cleared trees, did trail maintenance on Calabash, installed a new shower in Cabin 1, and cleaned the workshop. Lastly, they sorted through unneeded items from the laundry and kitchen areas to donate to Lowe Sound (most affected by the hurricane).
Interested in joining Work Weeks in the future?
