Beaver Pond Natural Area on TC - Nurturing Natives Weeding Party …06/13/2021
Join us for our last blast to remove blackberry and other invasives around newly planted native shrubs and wildflowers before taking a break for summer. Area is level and weeds easy to access. We are always glad to show off the restoration from previous years and Thornton Creek if you want a quick tour. Wildflowers might be in bloom too.
