2022 - Hap Pritchard
Hap is a true visionary. He dedicated an enormous amount of time and imagination to Mt Tabor Park, and showed his passion for environmental education.
As our official Visitor Center coordinator Hap scheduled and trained volunteers, kept the inventory stocked, came up with new items to sell, and answered a constant stream of questions. He helped us navigate the "new normal" of a pandemic and worked to find protocols to keep both visitors and volunteers safe.
Hap’s lasting legacy is the Urban Nature Series, a weekly education workshop that has been attended by hundreds of visitors. He also maintained the information kiosk, served on various committees, and wrote a brand new version of our geology brochure so that everyone can learn about our volcano.
Hap's contributions to Friends of Mt. Tabor Park and the community are incomparable, and we can't thank him enough for all the hard work he's done!
