Public Welcome Garden Installation/Maintenance

Later this month, Wild Ones members, members of the Garden Club of Allegheny County’s Native Plant Initiative, and DCNR will join forces to tidy up and install more native plants at Point State Park. Work will take place April 23rd, 24th, and 25th from 9AM to 2PM, with the greatest need being April 24th. You can commit to just a few hours, or the entire day. We are excited to work together with these great organizations, to beautify a featured public space in our city.

We hope to be able to provide 20 volunteers (each day) to this project, and we hope that you’ll consider lending a hand. Carpooling is encouraged, and information on free parking will be supplied to registered volunteers.

Point State Park will supply any gardening tools such as rakes, wheelbarrows, plant disposal bags, etc.
