Spring Volunteer Day – A Great Success!

Spring Volunteer Clean Up Day at Oliver Family Preserve






Fifteen volunteers planted over 400 wildlife friendly shrubs at the Oliver Family Preserve in Harrietta on April 30, 2016.


Thanks to board member Dan Valley’s organizational skills and natural resource background, the day went off like clockwork.

The line-up of activities included pounding stakes, digging holes, planting bushes, wrapping the newly constructed protectors around the bushes, and watering. The protectors are not attractive, but are temporary and are needed so the deer don’t eat the seedlings.

The volunteers worked over a six hour period and had a great sense of accomplishment by the end of the day.
