2020 has been an incredibly challenging year. Despite the challenges, it has been wonderful to see how our community can still come together and accomplish great work. The Arboretum is lucky to have a large group of volunteers.
We had a great turnout with over 20 volunteers showing up to work on projects throughout the Arboretum that would help improve the grounds as well as prepare for winter. While volunteers may not have been able to work on a large group project due to COVID-19, we were able to find jobs throughout the Arboretum, helping people to safely work.
Some of the projects that we were able to accomplish include:
- Weeding and mulching the front beds around the Visitor's Center
- Clearing invasives and woody debris from around the Johnson Pavilion
- Spreading mulch around the Permaculture Food & Forest Collection
- Sawing and clearing debris from our trails
