Native Plant Garden at Indian River Park
On Saturday we finally got the new native plant garden installed at Indian River Park. The plants mostly don't look like too much right now, but giving them this extra time to acclimate to their new home will give them a great start in the spring. A big thank you to the 20 enthusiastic volunteers who came out on this chilly morning to get the job done. Kudos to Amy Weber for her work on designing the garden layout and planning the event. Also, thank you to Eric Gunderson and Southern Branch Nursery, Inc. Besides being the source for the native plants for the garden, Southern Branch Nursery donated several extra plants for the garden and Eric stayed through the morning to help plant and provide his expertise. Next we'll be working on getting identification signs placed on the plants. You can find some more photos of today's work at our online photo album.
