Grow One Keep One Dropoff @ Meadowbrook

June 3 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

The seedlings sprouted by this year’s Grow One Keep One program will soon be ready to transplant! After you’ve decided which half of your milk jugs to keep, bring the other half by on Monday, June 3rd. We’ll stage them for transplanting on the 24th. Remember that some seeds may not have sprouted this season, but they will in subsequent ones!  We’ll need volunteer help between the hours of 9 and noon to set up the staging area, help arrange the plants, and other tasks around the Conservation Center. If you can’t make it by during that window, plants can be dropped off all day. Just look for the staging area on the west side of the Conservation Center!
Transplanted native seedlings grow at Meadowbrook throughout the summer months during last year’s Grow One Keep One program.

Volunteers should be prepared to work outside and dress appropriately for the weather. Conditions on the workday may be wet, warm or chilly. Volunteer workdays are held in all types of weather, although if conditions become hazardous during or leading into the workday, we may be forced to cancel abruptly. Your safety is our first concern! We will provide all the necessary equipment, gear, and water. We encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle!

So that we can best plan for Meadowbrook Monday, please RSVP through the website form below. Question? Call the office at 219-242-8558 or email

Please fill out the online Volunteer Application prior to attending. We will also have hard copies for you at this volunteer event. Stop by to lend a hand and chat with our staff about other opportunities that can flex your skills and fulfill your interests!
