5 Acres Woods in Lake Forest Park is officially going to be a new park with a ribbon cutting ceremony this Saturday, June 9th at 9:00 am. Kicking off the summer season for the Lake Forest Park Stewardship Foundation’s monthly work parties is another community building event with times noted below.

But what is not noted below are the thousands and thousands of hours in overall planning, grant writing, resident outreach, fundraising, monthly educational walks and presentations, writing press releases, discussions with the City, and consultation for the new RCO grant. Whew, that was a lot of work done by LFP Stewardship Foundation volunteers!

Something is missing- oh yes - and the restoration and trail creation that began this past January have over 800 hours logged in by many LFPSF and beyond dedicated volunteers!

Much more needs to be done to make this the exceptional park and nature center the best it can be. So please come on out and bring your garden gloves and tools and good-natured spirit and give a hand and celebrate with other LFP residents this Saturday morning.

Once you step onto the unique forested land that was undisturbed for over 40 years, you may very well want to return!

LFP’s Honey Bear Bakery has also been supporting the purchase of 5 Acre Woods by keeping volunteers loaded up with donated warm coffee and sweet treats for these monthly events. And this month there will also be an ending lunchtime hot dog BBQ and potluck!
