New Native Garden Planting Event

  • Wednesday, October 17, 2018
  • 5:00 PM–7:00 PM
  • Bunker Interpretive Center
  • FREE

Our wish for a new native demonstration garden is finally coming true. Be part of something special and give life to the garden beds by aiding us with planting. You can help populate the new oak savannah, tall grass prairie, rain garden, and pollinator garden natural habitats. Plus, you'll get a sneak peek of the redesigned gardens under development.

It is going to require several thousand plants to fill and complete this section of the garden, so we will joyfully accept all the help we can find. Bring a friend and spend some time together, or come and meet a new friend, or gather a group of your ecology-minded cohorts.

As a thank you to our hard-working volunteers, we’ll be providing a meal during each planting event.

REGISTER: Please register BY NOON the day before the event to help us plan. Walk-ins are welcome, but we are not able to guarantee a meal. Please note: If you are registering more people than yourself, you will need to specify dietary restrictions, accept a waiver, and provide an emergency contact for each person.

BRING: Your own work gloves and hand trowel to use; otherwise, we will have some for volunteers to borrow. We do recommend sunscreen, pants, closed-toe shoes and a water bottle.

NOTE: Planting events are open to anyone aged 10 and up; children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. We will be working near a construction zone, so for safety no one under 10 years old will be allowed on site.


The registration deadline has passed.
