The work of the “Friends of Bertram” is supported primarily through individual donations and we need your continued support. Friends will receive a quarterly newsletter, advance notice about natural history, invitations to special events and opportunities to get involved in park planning and projects, as well as protection efforts. Friends also gain the peace of mind in knowing that they are part of the effort to protect and restore the land and the wildlife living within this very special park.

  • Annual Earth Day Cleanup Event in April
  • Assistance with the Annual Bertram Blast Triathlon in July
  • Annual Blazin’ thru Bertram Phillip LaVallee Memorial Run in September
