A local not for profit support group has changed its name to more closely match its mission, while unveiling a new website to more clearly tell that story.
This past week, the Friends of Gorman Nature Center announced its new name, Friends of the Richland County Park District on social media. The change was effective December 7.
According to the announcement, “The Friends provides volunteer assistance, along with the coordination and financial support for programs and events that take place at all areas covered by the Richland County Park District.
The Richland County Park District supports and manages the operation of the Gorman Nature Center, the Richland B&O Trail, the Fleming Falls Preserve, and properties along the Clear Fork Valley Scenic Trail.”
The group, which was established in 1975, has also launched a new website here: https://sites.google.com/view/friendsofrichlandcountyparks.
In addition to details about the group’s organization and goals, there is a new “Nature’s Corner” that launched with a book recommendation from Board member Kate Peresie.
It is also possible to join the Friends of the Richland County Park District online by clicking on “Membership” in the top menu.
