Bull Shoals White River State Park Project Leaders
There will be a leadership opportunity for 1, 2, or 3 people to be Project Leaders at Bull Shoals White River State Park beginning in the new year.
After a number of years, Betsy and Margareta have decided to retire at the end of this season. They have done an outstanding job at the park and would like to pass on this wonderful project to new leadership. They generally meet on the first Tuesday of the month, but of course that can change.
Please feel free to contact me if you are interested or have questions. Lets keep this picturesque project going.
