Membership in our Chapter provides you with a chance to take action to preserve our environment. There are many ways you can contribute to the mission of the Chapter. You can adopt and maintain a flower bed on the grounds; or help to keep the nature trail free of growth. You can help with the mowing of our extensive fields, or the maintenance of our equipment. You can participate in the bow hunting program, bee keeping program, Chapter picnics and socials, family community events, butterfly gardens, birdwatching, to name a few. Get involved in the building and upkeep of our birdhouses, or contribute to this web site. You might want to develop a community outreach program, or actively promote the ideals of the League in your schools or community. We encourage you to be creative in how you would like to participate.

As a member of the Lois Green – Sligo Chapter, you are encouraged to attend the monthly membership meetings to hear speakers sharing topics of wide interests; and learn more about the agendas, goals, and actions of the Chapter, State Division and National. The meetings are held on the premises in the evening of the third Thursday of every month (except January and February). We hold work days in the morning of the first Saturday of each month. There are several Chapter events held every year, such as the annual holiday party, wild game dinner, and several pot luck picnics.
