Volunteer Appreciation Day + Spring Wildflowers and Butterflies

with Claudia Knab-Vispo & Conrad Vispo (Hawthorne Valley Farmscape Ecology Program)

Free Program.

A day to thank our existing volunteers and welcome new additions! We will team up to plant several native ground covers in the West Meadow conifer berms.

To get in the spirit of spring exploration, Claudia will lead a search for ephemeral spring wildflowers and Conrad will guide a hunt (with cameras, no nets!) for rare early-season butterflies.  Of course, we can’t predict the weather and so won’t make any promises, but there is potential for some interesting finds.

Stay for a delicious picnic lunch and meet fellow Arboretum volunteers. Bring a trowel (optional), water bottle, gloves and come dressed for the weather!
