Join Jug Bay staff and volunteers on Wednesdays 9 am – 12 noon at the Emory Waters Nature Preserve. To beat the summer heat we will meet 8-11 am June 22-Sept 13, 2023. See Jug Bay’s newest property and learn about native perennials that support our native butterflies, bees, and other pollinators. In warm months volunteers will weed, mulch, prune, and plant to revive, maintain, and build pollinator gardens. In cool months volunteers will assist with invasive plant removal, trash pick up, and various other stewardship and preserve projects in need of support. Meet new friends and enjoy interesting conversations. Bring gardening gloves, your favorite tools, and plenty of drinking water. Current health guidelines will be enforced. Ages:12 and up; 12 to 14 must be accompanied by an adult; 15 and older must be accompanied by an adult on the first day to complete a release form. Free. Walk-ins welcome! Groups of five or more please email Debra at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange. Proceed through the driveway gate about 1 mile to the second white house.
