Thank you to everyone who helped out at the last clean-up day and to Robbin Lang for donating some hairy beardtongue (Penstemon hirsutus) plants. They were planted yesterday, and hopefully will be happy and blooming next summer.
Fall starts this weekend, but please join us for a work day on Saturday, October 6th at 9:00. Our days are getting shorter, so please note the later than usual start time. We will be working in the crescent-shapped area near the start of the wooden boardwalk. If you have them, bring gardening gloves, eye protection, weed diggers, clippers, loppers and a bucket or tarp for hauling.
Also, one of the water pumps at the WFS is leaking like crazy. If you know a plumber who is willing to volunteer to fix it, please let me know.
Thanks for your help!
For those new to our blogsite and projects, the Wildflower Sanctuary is located downtown in Batavia along the riverwalk. The areas are open to the public and are easily accessible via sidewalks that go along the perimeter. The Wildflower sanctuary surrounds the peninsula of land that goes out into Depot Pond and along the Fox River.
