       Announcements

NEW! (June 2, 2021):

BGOP Members!
We finally got the good news that the County will allow us to re-open the shop in the Gulf Branch Nature Park. We are currently only open for general member use on the weekends, but hope to soon re-open more broadly (in the coming month or so). In order for members to use the shop, members must be current (please click here to Join or email bgopinfo@gmail.com for instructions on joining or submitting dues), and follow both the regular shop rules and a COVID protocol.

Members must reserve slots to use the shop on SignUpGeninus: https://tinyurl.com/BGOP-SHOP-SIGNUP

The COVID protocol and the regular shop rules are available on the SignUpGenius page. We look forward to getting back to work!
