Just what IS the Chesapeake Arboretum and who can be involved?
Individuals, families, faith-based groups, businesses (large & small!), civic organizations, scouts, school clubs — all can be part of the volunteer-run, nonprofit “Nature’s Classroom”. We welcome you!
Master Gardeners: Linda Bradley, Carmen Yenni, Pat Wright, and Penny Messing. Volunteers: Barbara Lane and Candy Skinner. They all work faithfully on a weekly basis with team leader, Linda Bradley.
Lydia Wade adopted 2 butterfly beds on the Homestead and have been working very hard to prepare them for the upcoming Spring 2014. This has involved weeding, removing certain plants and seedlings, mulching, and planting several new plants. Landscaping has been done by installing pavers, a birdbath on a tree stump and garden bench adjacent to the rear bed.
We have many more available places for volunteers to serve. Be sure to contact us and be a part of nature!
