Critters Crew
Are you good with a glue gun? Do you want to use your imagination and create unique ornaments? Join the Critter Crew!

The critter workshop looks like many other craft workshops, with shelves loaded with bins and boxes filled with materials waiting to be made into these unique and collectible ornaments. It's the creativity of our volunteers that turn the natural materials of teasels, pine cones, berries, dried flowers and more into the nearly 9,000 new ornaments for the annual Critter Sale and hundreds more for the holiday exhibition.

In addition to making the critters, volunteers also collect, clean and dry the materials. The time commitment is one morning (9:30 a.m. to noon) each week from early March through December. The workshop is open on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.
