Native Plant Mulching Event
Saturday, February 16, 2019
10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Join Albany Parks & Recreation and Willamette Restoration Volunteers in a native shrub mulching event at Simpson Park. We need volunteers to help put down wood mulch around bare root shrubs as part of an ongoing riparian restoration project to extend native plant establishment along First Lake. Mulching helps improve the survival of native plantings by enhancing water retention and reducing competition with weeds. Come help us restore and enhance native habitat that will benefit local wildlife and pollinators, improve habitat connectivity, and prevent invasive species reestablishment and soil erosion. This is a family-friendly event.
