If you are an active volunteer, you are automatically a member of the Friends of Fairchild (FOF). Active volunteers are defined as those giving or committed to giving a minimum of 30 hours of service to Fairchild each year in regularly scheduled program areas.
The Friends of Fairchild was founded in 1977 by volunteer Bert Zuckerman. The FOF programs and activities provide a social and educational experience for volunteers from all departments. The meetings range from purely social events and special lectures by Fairchild staff and guest speakers, to field trips to places with historical or botanical interest.
The Friends of Fairchild meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month in October, December, January, February and May and a Saturday in April. Volunteers receive a newsletter three times a year about upcoming FOF meetings and other Fairchild events.
You will find that part of the joy in volunteering at Fairchild comes from the wonderful people you meet here and through the Friends of Fairchild!
