Planting Day 1 (Pollinator/Restoration Project) Dec. 2017

December 15, 2017-Planting time! Big thanks to Arlington Parks and Recreation Department for preparing the site, installing the mulched trail and temporary irrigation system. Local ecotype grass and wildflower seeds have been hand-gathered, many thanks to John Snowden’s Bluestem Nursery….and more have been purchased from local providers with EarthDayTX grant funds…and planting day finally arrived!

Big thanks to everyone who showed up to rake, sow, roll and water, including the usual SWNP Friends, but also MPAC Friends, and APRD. There will be another day to finish, so if you missed this one, stay tuned!
Now we look forward to 2018 spring & summer with native grasses, wildflowers, and habitat for BUTTERFLIES & many other small critters.
