Join us on Saturday mornings from 10am to Noon for our 18th season of gardening among the wildflowers. Help restore the North Pond Nature Sanctuary and its surrounding areas as we plant trees, shrubs, and native wildflowers and grasses; mulch around park trees; collect litter; and perform other essential tasks. Over the weeks, volunteers will learn how to seed and plant native areas, identify and remove invasive species, and prune and mulch trees and shrubs. Optional training provided. No time commitment. Please sign up in advance.
