Conservation Area Volunteer Day

posted Apr 18, 2012, 6:44 AM by Brian Donahoe
Saturday, April 28, from 9-12. This should be a great year for the Conservation Area. The native species, which spent much of last year sending down strong roots, will really start blooming beautifully. The native trees and shrubs that were planted came through the winter well and I hope you got a chance to see the Cornelian Cherry Dogwood, Serviceberry, and Blackhaw Viburnum blooming. The woodland wildflowers that we planted several years ago also look great-don't miss seeing the Virginia bluebells in flower!

This will be our first volunteer day of the year. It will be a fun way to help your community while spending time with your neighbors. Pizzo Associates treated the bulk of the garlic mustard but there are still some that needs to be pulled along with some buckthorn seedlings. Please join us at the Conservation Area (next to the beach) to help with this effort! Bring your own heavy duty gloves. We also have wood chips to add to the existing paths. Please help us spread the word as we do not have e-mails for all CLA members. This would also be a great opportunity for any young people needing service hours!!
