Saturday October 22: Autumn beach cleanup

16 Oct

Lots of brilliant colors throughout the dunes this time of year! But windy weather during the last month means trash has piled up on the beach. Join us on Saturday October 22 from 9-11 to clean up trash, pull invasive plants, and disperse seeds as we contemplate the coming winter.


Follow-up: Saturday, September 24 workday

Many thanks to all who came out for the planting in September. We were joined by familiar faces and lots of new ones, many from Gary Comer College Prep! It’s always a great treat to watch students developing into stewards of their local lands and we welcome their participation again. We planted hundreds of native plants throughout the nature area and next summer you will see even more cheerful clusters of flowering butterfly milkweed. A few dedicated volunteers also tackled a huge mass of invasive grape — between their efforts and trash cleanup around the site, we filled up eight garbage bags.
