Calling all High School Students! – Reminder

Looking for a fun place to volunteer?

[Pollinator garden with pots of new plants waiting]

The Champlain Park Community needs your help caring for plants and tiny forests (watering, weeding and maintenance).

“It is really nice to spend some time outside in the forest, and you get volunteer hours too! If you love to be outdoors and help out your community, this is the place for you!”

says student volunteer Natasha L.

You can expand your knowledge about plants and trees and species of bugs, and meet new people, all while getting volunteer hours. It is all outdoors, so there is plenty of space to social distance and stay safe!

If you are interested, please contact Daniel Buckles (daniel.buckles@gmail.com)

Spring time trees

Are you one of the lucky ones with a front yard unimpeded by hydro wires? Do you have a backyard with space to breath? Want to start the next generation of the elder tree in your yard? There are still a few baby Bur Oaks (Heritage Champlain Oaks) and baby Sugar Maples available from my backyard nursery. They will become big trees, so not for tiny spaces. Curb side pick up available at Daniel Avenue, by sending an email to dbuckles@sas2.net.
