Volunteer Workday @ Meadowbrook

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

Free

As ephemerals bloom, shoots sprout, and foliage emerges, we have plenty of work to do to keep up with. You can help us with some of the gardening chores! We’ll be raking the detritus from last year’s growth in the native garden and weeding the parking lot island. Help us keep the area around our conservation center looking better than ever!

Wild geraniums bloom in Meadowbrook’s native plant garden.

Come help us maintain the garden as we continue to celebrate the springtime spirit of new growth and renewal.

Be prepared to work outside and dress appropriately for the weather. Conditions on the workday may be damp 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’ll provide all the necessary equipment, gear, light snacks, and water. As always, we encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle.

So that we can best plan for the workday, please RSVP through the website form below. Question? Call the office at 219-242-8558 or email volunteer@heinzetrust.org.

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 will engage your skills and pique your interests!
