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.
Volunteers will assist Refuge staff in the restoration of disturbed landscape. The planting of native species is an important part of the restoration process as native plants compete against exotic species, stabilize disturbed soils, and provide habitat for wildlife.With this planting event, the refuge hopes to re-create and restore upland habitat for a variety of the natural local species. Enjoy planting both small and 5-gallon containers of grasses, shrubs and trees. Individuals need to be in good physical condition as planting requires bending, kneeling, and getting dirty.
The Office of Continuing Education will be closed Nov. 22-24 in observance of Thanksgiving. The information desk will reopen Monday Nov. 26 for normal business hours.
