Time to Volunteer?

As Silverwood Park "comes online" in 2016, the Friends of Silverwood need help.  Contact Volunteer Coordinator Rita Fox, by telephone at 715-623-7277 or by e-mail at volunteer@silverwoodpark.org to find out how you can help with a project!  We have a variety of possibilities for volunteers:

  • garden planting, weeding, watering and general maintenance
  • removal of invasive species and forest conservation projects
  • farmstead preservation work, such as painting and carpentry

Events at Silverwood Support Park Projects

All Friends of Silverwood Park events have a support component to assist with maintenance or development of the park.

Funds raised at our June Barn Dance  will be used to preserve historic farm buildings, such as the old corn cribs.  While the stone farmhouse is being renovated with County funds , the other buildings at Silverwood must be maintained through donations to the Friends, including volunteer labor.  So, dance to help us save the Farm!
