 Wildflower Donations

Do you need to divide your coneflowers and black-eyed susans? Think about donating them to the park in the spring of 2024 Contact Laurie at [email protected] for further information. The park will begin using pollinator friendly weed spray and will be preparing 2 areas for planting wildflower beds. Look for the changes in the coming months!
