Growing Nature’s Garden


Just wanted to remind everyone that Project Native’s 4th Annual Volunteer Day happening this Saturday, June 2nd from noon to 4 pm. We will be removing invasives from the area that will become our woodland seed bank. Volunteer time will be used to match a grant received from the Landowners Incentive Program. Hope you can make it and bring along friends - the more the merrier!!

~*THIS SATURDAY, June 2nd, 12 - 4pm

What’s in it for you: A great opportunity to meet new people & spend a few hours helping a local non-profit and the natural world.

The Task: learn to identify and hand-pull invasive plant seedlings

Why: Invasive species can quickly crowd out native plants destroying natural habitats needed for wildlife. We plan to restore this area with the planting of a native woodland seed bank.

What to bring: long pants, closed-toed shoes, gloves, sunscreen, bag lunch and a water bottle.

Please do not hesitate to call if you have

any questions 413-274-3433.
