Thank you to everyone that has helped us install thousands of native plants at the Spano River Ranch. Now we need your help to make sure they are growing up strong. Join us as we perform some light weeding, mulching, and build protective cages for the young plants. This event will run from 9:00am until 12:00pm and is a great opportunity for all individuals and groups. There is no longterm commitment and all tools are provided.
