“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” — Elizabeth Andrew
Volunteers are essential in the day-to-day operations at Cope Environmental Center. From taking care of our indoor plants to assisting in environmental education programs, CEC volunteers are always up to the task. Because of this, we wanted to give them a nice, cozy home. The Volunteer Vestibule houses our wonderful volunteers and was built by the labor and donations of our volunteers as well!
Made possible by a gift from Borman Family Foundation
You’re surrounded by a forest of cherry! The woodwork in this room was produced by volunteer Bob Ferrell using locally grown wood. And check out that handrail! It is fashioned out of cherry wood and crafted by another one of CEC’s volunteer woodworkers, Charlie Probasco. The branch was rescued right before it met the chipper and exemplifies the intersection of art, functionality, and the environment. This handcrafted space is a home for our volunteer corp. We are thrilled that volunteers had a hand in creating it! Volunteer Team: Bob Ferrell, Charlie Probasco, Bill Miller, Mike Johnson, Duane Bane, and Danny Stackleather (not pictured).
