  • 2 people are interested

Join the Greenbelt Native Plant Center staff for a day of winter plant care, seed cleaning, and off-season maintenance. Outdoor tasks, if the weather allows, will include weeding, pruning, and nursery yard maintenance. Indoor tasks include hand and machine processing of native seed and facility cleaning and organizing. There will be many different ways to participate, but volunteers should be prepared for winter outdoor work or dusty indoor work and should expect for things to get a bit dirty.
