Hank Dahlstrom, a member of the Fall 2019 Fairfax Master Naturalist basic training class, received the 2019 Hidden Oaks Outstanding Volunteer award on November 22, 2019 for her outstanding naturalist contributions.
Hank provides a welcoming face to visitors and a helping hand to anyone who needs it. Having been with Hidden Oaks for three years, she is able to answer visitors’ questions about programs and natural resources. She has a wealth of knowledge about native species. Hank contributes many hours to behind-the-scenes preparation of crafts for the nature programs. She is very creative and offers her sewing and quilting skills to create numerous things that brighten up the exhibit space. Hank also has a calm demeanor and is able to help when children are rambunctious. Hidden Oaks would not be as well prepared for our programs without the help of willing volunteers like Hank.award
