Join us on Saturday, August 7th for our next work party. We will work from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm.
In order to maintain our Fairhaven Park, Native Plant Gardens, we host Fairhaven Park Work Parties as volunteer opportunities for you to invest in the health of the park.
Your tasks will be to remove invasive blackberries in our native plant restoration site, move mulch to help young native saplings grow, and with overall restoration of the site. Volunteers moving mulch earlier this summer at our last party below.
Afterwards, we’ll convene at Stones Throw Brewery to wind up the afternoon and celebrate our accomplishments.
Please sign up ASAP as an RSVP so we know how many tools to bring. Thank you.
