Golf Course Pollinator Garden Planting

Activity Type: 
Event Date: 
Thursday, June 28, 2018 - 7:00am to 9:00am
Event Details: 

Every Thursday from 7 am to 9 am at the University of Maryland Golf Course, volunteers are needed to help establish a common milkweed planting for the benefit of Monarch Butterflies. This is a very large project at around 33,000 square feet and we need many people to help remove weeds so that the milkweeds and other native wildflowers that were planted that are beneficial to butterflies and other pollinators in this planting will thrive.

This area is a focal point of the golf course, only about 100 yards behind the clubhouse, where that it can be viewed from plate glass windows.

This will be a repeated event, every Thursday at the same time, through mid-October. Sam Bahr, horticulturist, with the University of Maryland Arboretum and Botanical Garden will be there to guide volunteers. Parking is free in the golf course parking lot. We will be on the opposite side of the clubhouse, near the orange all-terrain vehicle.

Volunteers must be able to kneel, bend, and lift items. SSL hours are available.
