Join us and install a variety of native plants at lovely Crosby Farm Regional Park, September 17, 6-8 pm.
Volunteers will work in a raingarden, a runoff-reducing berm and in a demonstration prairie. We’ll plant what’s needed in each to strengthen and expand the restoration area. Altogether, the native plants, prairie, raingarden and berm serve as “green infrastructure” — helping to prevent erosion, improve soils and filter pollution from runoff stormwater before it can reach the river. Of course, the native plants also provide much-needed urban habitat for native bees, birds and other wildlife.
As always, staff will provide all the guidance, tools, and gloves needed for a productive and fun event. Children accompanied by a parent or guardian are welcome.
Space is limited and registration required. For more information, including how to register visit: http://fmr.org/events/2015/09/17/native-wetland-green-infrastructure-planting.
