Join a Committee – The Glen Helen Association needs you! Our committees are the driving force behind most of the activities at Glen Helen. For example, the Membership Committee does the legwork to advance our cause by encouraging membership and offering membership events; the Property Committee champion stewardship efforts, inspired by ecology, the protection of species at risk and all matters related to biodiversity. There are several committees to choose from. Committee members have a unique opportunity to play a critical role in development and growth at Glen Helen.
