our parks division is looking for volunteers or volunteer groups to complete various projects involving sweat equity at state parks, historical parks and recreation areas. Any help provided would be most appreciated! In fact, Nik Johanson at Red Willow State Recreation Area in southwestern Nebraska is looking for volunteers to do projects  there on Saturday, May 8th which is fast approaching on the calendar!
