Colman Park - First Planting - Green …11/03/2019

Host: Friends of Colman Park


The weekend of planting in our parks continues!!
Come join us in Colman Park on Sunday to get one section of the park planted with young native plant species. With the incredible help of our community, we have worked hard all year to clear this site of invasive species and ready the ground for the introduction of a variety of trees, shrubs and ferns.
We have over 600 plants we need to get into the ground before the rains and to ensure they have the best chance of survival. We would love to have you come spend the morning with us learning about and planting our urban forests.

Open to the public

All ages OK

10 out of 65 volunteers registered.
