Reporting your volunteer and continuing education hours is a critical component to future funding and the continued success of Ozaukee Master Gardeners. Your hours are added to the total of all other members for the year. Those numbers are reported both to the statewide program and to Ozaukee County. Funding for the master gardener program is largely based on our accumulated hours. Please take the time to record your hours. Turn your hours in on October 1. (Recorded hours are reported for the time period of October 1 to September 30 each year.)
Here are links to download the 2016 forms to record your volunteer and continuing education hours. These forms were updated as of 19 October 2015 to help comply with state laws. The links provide three different file formats:
When you submit your hours, remember to include your check for dues ($20) for the upcoming year.
If you need the prior year’s form, please contact the office.
If you have expenses for one of our projects, use this form to submit your request for reimbursement.
