Volunteers needed for Earth Day weekend

The Charlotte Park and Wildlife Refuge Oversight Committee invites volunteers to work on a spring project at the park. Last year we had a great time planting disease-resistant elms. This year we will be working to restore a hedgerow by cleaning up old fencing and other material and preparing the soil for planting grasses and wildflower seeds. Native trees and shrubs will be planted in the area. We are hoping for a good weather day on Saturday, April 21, but will have Sunday, April 22, as our rain date. 

Meet at the Thorp Barn on Route 7 at 10:00 a.m. Bring a picnic lunch.
