Donor Spotlight | Mary Welker Gives the Gift of Her Time

January 18, 2018
Bridge Gardens

Mary Welker is a long-time donor to the Trust. She also gives another important gift: her time.

Over the past several years, Mary has volunteered at countless Bridge Gardens events. She told us that she is “passionate about supporting this demonstration garden where people can learn about the importance of low impact, organic landscapes and garden practices.” And at the same time enjoy nature, music, food, and companionship!

Mary credits her commitment to the Trust to the enduring and dynamic vision of our President, John v.H. Halsey, and to our staff and volunteers. She first learned about the Trust when John led the effort to found the organization in 1983. Since then, Mary has been deeply impressed with our work to preserve open space and our ability to inspire others to support that vision. She has watched the organization grow and change throughout its 35 year history, all the while reflecting the needs of the community and the East End.

We thank you, Mary, for all you do for the Trust! And we are grateful to all of you who are part of our 100+ volunteer corps for making our work possible.
