Thank you to these dedicated volunteers who came out on February 26 for our second "Nifty Ninety"--just 90 minutes of volunteer time to help with 5 projects around the island.

On November 21, a safe, socially distanced event was enjoyed by supporters of the Bocilla Islands Conservancy. Participants tried to draw a winning poker hand by traveling to 4 stops around the island. Each stop was a different themed area hosted by Island residents. Take-away refreshments were available at each stop. The event culminated in a golf cart drive-in prize area where winners were announced. Approximately $7,000 in proceeds from ticket sales and purchases will help support on-going projects of the Bocilla Islands Conservancy.
