Volunteerism-A Beginning of the Return to Normal

Volunteerism-A Beginning of the Return to Normal

In many ways 2020 seems like a lost year, and in fact when many of our staff say ‘last year’ we are thinking of 2019. The Research and Stewardship programs were able to continue almost as normal, and the Coastal Training Program shifted to online trainings.

Great Bay’s annual 5K road race now boosts a new 55k option, which I thought was craziness. How many runners are thinking, let’s do a 5K race and then run it again 10 more times? Apparently a lot, as 134 runners completed the 55K race! I took it a crazy step farther, read more about my 175K challenge.
