Upcoming Event

Urban Half Marathon and 5K
The urban Half Marathon and 5K will take place on Saturday, August 1st.
We also need volunteers for stuff bags for this event. Please contact Murray McCartan at if you are available for the race or volunteering.
Volunteer Information
Hello Friends of Wood Lake Nature Center!
We are busy gearing up for our annual Urban Wildland Half Marathon and 5K Races that directly supports the 38-year partnership between Richfield Public Schools and the center. Each student grades k-6th grade come on three environmental education programs a year that are supported by the race as school budgets have become increasingly tight. In order to make the race a success we need to stuff over 1500 “green” runner bags, so to do that we are having a bag stuffing PARTY!
We need volunteers to aid in stuffing bags for approximately 3-4 hours Monday, July 27. We will have food, beverages, and tunes to enjoy as we stuff! Please consider joining us, we need a volunteer crew of at least 15 people.

Date: Monday, July 27
Time: 9am-12:30pm
Location: Richfield Ice Arena (66th Street and Portland Ave in Richfield)
636 E. 66th Street

Please let me know you are coming by Friday, July 24 (email or call)

Hope to see you there,
