Volunteer this weekend at South Twin Ponds

Thursday, November 15, 2018

This could be you!


Install new plants at Twin Ponds Park this Saturday, November 17 from 10am to 1pm

Shoreline Parks has six sites where our citizens are restoring urban forests and developing wildlife habitats. All the work is done by volunteers including high school students, Boy Scouts and neighbors.

On this coming Saturday new shrubs, trees ferns and ground covers will go in the ground and your volunteer help is needed.

In the past, large amounts of weeds were removed and this Fall we have dug up some remaining roots of the tall vines that once thicketed the site. The soil is easy to dig now and the most rewarding task, planting, awaits you. Please come help out.

Students needing service hours for graduation are welcome.

Our work site is located next to a small, busy parking lot on First Av. one block north of 149th St. where 150th St would be if it existed. It is across from Aegis Assisted Living and near the community garden. Street parking can be found on 149th St. Avoid the lot on 155th St. which can be confused with the correct lot.

Although the current forecast is for very good weather, please come prepared for a rainy or chilly day as we work in all weather. Sturdy shoes and hats are also useful.

We supply gloves and tools plus a large container of water and snack bars. Please feel free to bring your own items, especially a reusable water bottle. Snack donations are welcome too.

Contact: restoreTwinPondsSouth@outlook.com to indicate you are coming or for any questions.
