Ready to get dirty for birds? We have the incredible opportunity of planting more than 5,000 square feet of native plants across three beds at the Caldwell-Boylston House at the Governor's mansion, and we need your help!
This will be history in the remaking, with new native species specifically chosen for their year-round benefit to birds and pollinators as well as their beauty. Just like the Governor's Mansion creates a foundation for our state, native plants create a foundation for our wildlife.
This event is split into two shifts. The morning shift from 9 to 12 will be tackling the large bed. The afternoon shift from 1 to 4 will be working on the two smaller front beds.
For gear, you will need closed-toed shoes or boots, a trowel or shovel if you have one (we will bring some too). We can provide gloves but feel free to bring your own. We will provide some snacks and drinks but it's always a good idea to bring extra water, as well as sunscreen and a hat. No experience is necessary, but you should expect strenuous physical activity including bending, lifting, digging, etc.
Come help us plant a legacy for both people and birds to enjoy!
