On Friday, April 22nd, Stroud Water Research Center will be conducting a spring planting event at Overlook Park to celebrate Earth Day and they would like to invite you to join in!
The Stroud staff and local volunteers / residents will be installing a native pollinator garden at the entry to the new restoration site across from Stoner Grille. Small plugs of native perennials will be added along the newly planted streamside forest across the road from the Manheim Township Public Library. The event will take place between 9 am and 12 pm.
“Stroud Water Research Center, Manheim Township and many other conservation partners are creating an ecologically rich buffer of native trees, shrubs and perennials that not only protects the small stream flowing through the park, but provides food and cover for fish, birds, butterflies and bees”, said Watershed Restoration Coordinator, Lamonte Garber.
Stroud Water Research Center is seeking five more volunteers, click here to sign up and participate.
