Gardening Gone Wild


Make a difference in your community! Native plants help prevent erosion, reduce dust, help to thwart invasive species and provide important habitat for wildlife. Join a team of volunteers to plant native trees at Corn Creek. There are 3 different areas that will be planted at this event. Individuals need to be in fairly good physical condition as planting requires the ability to bend, kneel, get a little dirty, and lift 1 gallon and larger potted plants. Plan to be outside in cool, sunny conditions with no shade - a hat and sunscreen are recommended. Work gloves, water, snacks, and a good time will be provided.Audience: Must be at least 12 years old. If volunteer is under 18, they must be accompanied by a parent at all times.Location: Desert National Wildlife RefugeAgency: USFWSVolunteer Work Type: PlantingRegister at
