Biodiversity in Peg’s Native Garden:

Biodiversity in Peg's Native Garden, beginning stages, at Meadowbrook Nature Preserve

This photo of Biodiversity in Peg’s Native Garden, was taken in 2014! Fast forward to 2022 and this garden is thriving with biodiversity! Over the years, many volunteers have spent their time in keeping this blossoming entrance well maintained.

Drop-in on Meadowbrook Monday, September 19 (9am-noon) as we continue these efforts to transplant giant standing stalks and trim decaying wildflowers that are crowding the sidewalk!

Our Volunteer Coordinator, Abigail, will provide all the necessary equipment that you will need! Feel free to stay as little or as long as you’d like. There will be snacks and water provided during this time.
