At the Cedar Valley Arboretum and Botanic Gardens, volunteers are a necessary part of our operation. Thanks to the volunteers who do weeding, watering, welcome center greeting and all kinds of other odd jobs we provide a welcoming atmosphere that shares the beauty of nature with those in our communities. We want to thank our volunteers for the work they do. This month’s volunteer is Vikki Brauer.
Vikki lives in Hudson and works as one of our Welcome Center Greeters. She is married and has three children and three step-children, all grown up, 5 grandkids, and 14 step-grandkids. Vikki used to work as a quality engineer and manager before she retired. Vikki started volunteering at the Cedar Valley Arboretum and Botanic Gardens so that she would have something to do in retirement. She enjoys working in the Welcome Center because of the variety. Some days are quiet and peaceful while others are busy and hectic.
Next time you stop by the Arboretum say hello to Vikki!
