FODM Reaches Out
In April 2022, the Friends of Dyke Marsh reached out to the larger community when we participated in two community events and offered materials and information about FODM and Dyke Marsh.
On April 16, we had a table at the 50th anniversary of the Mount Vernon Trail along with other groups, at the invitation of the Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail.

On April 23, we tabled at Mount Vernon Supervisor Dan Storck’s fourth Environmental Expo with 35 other organizations. Supervisor Storck estimates that around 500 people attended. Many youngsters made colorful birds at FODM’s Expo table.
