Meadowbrook Monday – Sprucing Up the Pavilion

September 18, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT


Join us September 18th as we spruce up the new pavilion!  The pavilion at Meadowbrook Nature Preserve has become a focal point for ecological education and activities around the region.  Although it was constructed a year ago, it requires occasional maintenance to retain its neat, rustic elegance.  You can take part in its upkeep by coming out and helping us pull weeds, which are starting to grow up between the paving blocks.  We’ll also be removing the erosion control tubes and washing sediment off the patio surface.  This project should take just one workday to complete and will leave the pavilion in its intended state.

Meadowbrook’s pavilion recently hosted our inaugural Plastic-Free July event.

Be prepared to work outside and dress appropriately for the weather. We will provide all the necessary equipment, gear, light snacks, 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
