Meadowbrook Mondays – Drop in Volunteering
August 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us on the first and third Monday of every month for Meadowbrook Mondays as we work on a variety of projects at Meadowbrook Nature Preserve in Valparaiso to improve and beautify the preserve!
On Monday, August 16th, we will be rescuing plants before the upcoming parking lot renovation. Come help us pot them up to create a new rain garden!
Bring your favorite gloves if you have them; we’ll have extra on hand if you don’t. We will provide all the necessary equipment and gear, as well as granola bars and water, although we encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle.
Please dress appropriately for the weather and come prepared with protective footwear, long pants, long sleeves, hats and sunscreen. There may be poison ivy, mosquitoes, and ticks, but we will have bug spray and TecNu on hand for your protection.
So that we can best plan for the event, please RSVP by calling the office at 219-242-8558 or emailing Volunteer Coordinator Christine Maloney at firstname.lastname@example.org. For information about last minute cancellations, please check Facebook.
Please note that Meadowbrook Nature Preserve and Conservation Center will be closed for the months of September and October for public access improvements.
