President's Year-End Message

Dear Friends of Sligo Creek supporters,

2017 has been an exciting and busy year for the Friends of Sligo Creek (FoSC), and we do it all with a volunteer team made up of your community members! 

There are lots of ways you can connect, engage with, and support FoSC and our park. If you have a specific talent that you'd like to share with us, please let me know. I would love to hear from you!

Can we count on you? Your financial support helps FoSC:
  • Plan and host free outdoor walks and evening indoor talks
  • Purchase water-quality testing equipment
  • Promote stormwater control projects 
  • Fund our informative newsletter
  • Remove invasive, non-native plants
  • Run the spring and fall Sweep the Creek trash clean-ups
  • Plant native plants and trees
  • Pay for the beautiful and inspirational postings in our park kiosks
  • Create and launch our new FoSC website!
If you have not donated in a while or have never donated to FoSC, now is the time! We can't do it without your support. FoSC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so your donation is tax deductible and will be invested right back into where you live -- the Sligo Creek watershed. Please visit our website and click "donate now" here:

If you shop online through Amazon, you can also designate 0.5 percent of all your purchases to come to FoSC.  See how here: amazon smile.

Thank you and have a wonderful holiday season,

Corinne Stephens
FoSC President
