“This year we noticed that it was up a little bit,” said Executive Director Cam Eggie. “We can attribute that to public knowledge and engagement. We are optimistic that if we continue with education and engagement we can get more volunteers for the upcoming season.”

Eggie added that the increases show just how generous the community continues to be year after year.
