Women in Preservation making a difference on Plum and Pilot Islands

A program designed specifically to give women a chance to be involved in the restoration project on Plum and Pilot Islands is making great strides this summer.  Mary Beth Vollmer, president of the Friends of Plum and Pilot Islands (FOPPI), explains how the Women in Preservation program works and the projects already accomplished.



The Women in Preservation just finished a working weekend by completing three picnic benches for Plum Island. Vollmer adds that FOPPI volunteers number about 250 and are from all over the United States.   Other work done on Plum and Pilot Islands by the organization includes trail maintenance and the removal of invasive species.
