Please Note: There is a chance this event could be rescheduled if the basins are too wet on Saturday morning. Please check the whiteclay.org website before leaving in the morning--a cancellation notice will be posted.
The White Clay Creek Wild and Scenic Rivers Program needs your volunteering support to help improve the water quality in the White Clay Creek. Two rain gardens, which work to capture, infiltrate, and treat polluted run off, are in need of plants.
40 volunteers are needed to plant native wildflowers and grasses along the bottom and edges of two large rain gardens. Holes will be predrilled by the township, but volunteers should also be prepared to dig small holes. Volunteers will learn about native wildflowers and grasses for rain gardens and how they help to clean our water!
The event will take place on Saturday, May 17th from 9am-1pm. Bring comfortable clothes and boots that you wouldn't mind getting dirty and wet. If you own small shovels or garden trowels and gardening gloves please bring them since there are a limited number supplied on-site. The event will occur at Goddard Park, 498 Wickerton Road, West Grove, PA in London Grove Township. More information can be found on the White Clay Creek Wild and Scenic Website at whiteclay.org.
