About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this program is over. The last meeting was Friday, June 21, 2024.

You are invited to volunteer and join us for a Restoration Day at Boone Creek Conservation Area. Learn how actions, powered by the community as part of MCCD's stewardship/restoration volunteer program are impacting pollinators in positive ways. We will end our volunteer time with food, fellowship, and a Pollinator Patrol to observe the activity taking place on site. All ages and stages of experiences are welcome.


Spanning about 600+ acres, this site is home to pollinators a plenty! Our natural areas benefit greatly from a team of dedicated volunteers who are out on a regular basis, exploring what it means to care for the land, and its inhabitants. Whether it's removing invasive plants, collecting and spreading native plants seeds, monitoring plants and wildlife, or planting trees. ALL these volunteer actions add up and make a difference! They significantly improve habitats and the quality of life for pollinators. The real satisfaction and joy comes from quality time spent outdoors, in community with a shared purpose, making discoveries and connections that leave lasting impressions.
