A Message From Our Outgoing President, Karyn Weber

Karyn Weber As I reflect back on the past 15 years as a volunteer, and 10 years as the President of NatureScaping of SW WA and the Wildlife Botanical Gardens I say:

“Thank you to the special people who opened a whole new world to me.  I have been so lucky sharing the Wildlife Botanical Gardens, building friendships, meeting with individuals from diverse backgrounds and perspectives; and being involved with people who have a passion for life, the environment and wildlife”.

I am so proud of all the volunteers who put in endless hours to make the Wildlife Botanical Gardens what they are today and with the NatureScaping members who show their support as active members behind the scenes.

I thank our benefactors whose donations are invaluable to our organization, and to the many wonderful organizations that have built partnerships with NatureScaping. Your assistance has enabled us to develop many ideas and projects and helped us see them come to fruition. Thank you for helping NatureScaping spread the word about the many volunteer opportunities at the Wildlife Botanical Gardens.

I am energized by the new 2013 opportunities, board members and volunteers for NatureScaping and the Wildlife Botanical Gardens. For example, July’s Art in the Gardens, Hardy Plant Society’s 2013 Open Gardens Tour Dates, the ‘Fedge’ Fence in the Homestead Garden, plans for a donation box, an updated website and more.

New volunteers include Jason Starr (Maintenance Co-Coordinator) and Richard Palmer (Homestead Garden Co-Coordinator). I’m excited that Kent Gentry volunteered to continue as NatureScaping’s “volunteer” Volunteer Coordinator.

Thank you to the Board and welcome new officers and members: Terry Covington (Board Secretary), Barb Rider (Vice President), Cathy Olsen, Gary Stebbins, Fran Hannah, and Martha Stephenson (Board Members). Thank you, LouAnn Wittler (Treasurer) for your devotion to NatureScaping since its founding in 1994 and endless hours keeping our accounting in order.

To our new NatureScaping President, Meredith Hardin, who is an outstanding individual and who, I believe, has the ability to make NatureScaping of Southwest Washington and the Wildlife Botanical Gardens shine in our community.

To all of you, I stand here and give you my applause.

Thank You,
Karyn Weber, Vice President
President 1993 through 2012
