Attention middle school through high school students!  Are you looking at getting involved in your community?  Well, we have a great way for you to do it.  All you have to do is donate your time to help out your park district and community by volunteering at any of our special events.  You can volunteer for all events or just a few.  This is perfect for those who enjoy helping or may need credit for honor societies or church obligations.  If you are interested in this program please contact Jon Seidenzahl at 847-526 – 3610, jseidenzahl@waucondaparks.com, or sign up using the volunteer contact form at waucondaparks.com
