Description

Join the Thelma Gilmur Education Committee in our first annual Thelma Gilmur Birthday Celebration to honor her many contributions to Pierce County environmental education.

Meet us Saturday morning at Thelma Gilmur Park in Fircrest. The education committee will lead the short half mile walk. We will enjoy the beautiful urban forest, check out on the pond overlook, learn about the origins of the park, and pay tribute to Thelma’s life of work. Seeing birds and the ever-elusive Pacific beaver will be a welcome bonus!

In lieu of presents, bring your binoculars and field guide, and your sense of curiosity.  Of course, cake and ice cream will be served!  

To prepare for the party, Tahoma Audubon, Pierce Conservation, and UPS student volunteers will be working with Fircrest Parks to spiff up the trail. For more information on this stewardship project, call Sally Larson at 253-588-9839.
