FICRA Wish List

Nichols Center and Grounds

We just finished our Spring cleanup event in April and our next cleanup event will be here in the fall. Watch our website and Facebook page for the date.  Between our group cleanup events, there are always plenty of things to do to keep the building and grounds in good shape.

Immediate Needs

  • Powerwash the deck and front entry.
  • Rake the wood chips off the power ditch and band stage site in the North lawn so we can put grass seed down.
  • Reset the bricks on the walk to the gazebo in the zone where the ditch was dug for the power to the FICRA Fair food area.

Major Projects

  • Replacing the deteriorated siding, window sills and windows in the southwest corner of the NCC
  • Grading and improving the ball field to make the facility more usable by children and teens
  • Restoring the original schoolhouse windows in the NCC

Fox Island Nature Center

  • Assist in the ongoing clearing of invasive plants
