Mike Duss who has volunteered at the Indian Creek Nature Center for about 25 years told a little about their new Amazing Space building before passing the podium off to ICNC Land Steward Jean Wiedenheft. After a small talk she gave us a tour and John Schwartzkopf told us about the work he has done for some of the furniture.

Mike extended an invitation for volunteers as the center is always looking for more people interested in helping out.
