“People all over the state know about FOSC. Why? Because of our love and care for Sligo. The activism of our folks makes an outsized impact on this skinny little creek.”

Kit Gage, Advocacy Committee Chair

Friends of Sligo Creek is a nonprofit organization. We are volunteer-led, spending thousands of hours each year to develop programming, host events in or near the Park, monitor its health, advocate on its behalf, and partner with other organizations and government agencies.

Even with all that volunteer time, there are many costs we incur, among them:

  • speaker fees and honorariums
  • expert-led walks and workshops
  • venue rentals
  • kiosk maintenance and displays
  • tools, gloves and bags for Sweep the Creek and Invasive plant removal events
  • testing equipment and supplies for water quality monitoring
  • liability insurance
  • newsletter, website, print, and other media
  • and more

Help your local environment thrive and enjoy the results – the beauty and tranquility of Sligo Creek.
