Volunteers Invited to Lend A Hand in the Landscape
Every year, we dedicate special landscape days for volunteers to come together to help maintain Manitoga as a resource and inspiration for professionals and the public. Staff provide special training for teams working on major projects to ready the site for the season and to maintain Wright’s unique design vision.
Lunch is provided.
