What: Volunteer at the Native Plant Nursery with Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah
Where: Native Plant Nursery at Buford Park (see directions below - it's not at the main Mt Pisgah parking lot!)
With Who: Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah!
Help Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah grow seed for local habitat restoration projects and enjoy working outside in a beautiful setting! Our lovely 2-acre nursery at Buford Park is where we grow all of the native plant materials for habitat restoration projects on more than 700 acres throughout Buford Park and the greater Mt. Pisgah Area. It's a relaxing and fun way to spend your time and makes a real difference in our ability to repopulate native species throughout the park. No prior experience is needed. Instruction and supervision will be provided. Please dress in layers and closed-toed shoes. Bring a full water bottle. We’ll provide tools, gloves and snacks.
Directions to the Nursery (NOT AT WEST/MAIN PISGAH PARKING LOT): Take Seavey Loop road towards the park. Once you cross the bridge at the entrance to the park, veer LEFT on to Frank Parrish Road. Do not go to the main parking lot. Drive past the North Trailhead parking area and through the yellow gate to the left (not the cattle gate near the trail head) before proceeding to the nursery, which is about a 1/4 mile down the road. You DO NOT need a parking pass for the nursery. Contact Hal Hushbeck, Nursery Manager, at 541 543-9032 if you have trouble finding the nursery.
PLEASE REGISTER so we can give Friends of Buford Park and Mt Pisgah a general idea of how many will be coming.
Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah is a self-funded nonprofit of 1,000+ members and volunteers investing our time, talent and money so people and nature can thrive together in the greater Mt. Pisgah area. Our mission is to protect and enhance native ecosystems and compatible recreation in the Mt. Pisgah area. Last year, more than 535 volunteers contributed more than 14,000 hours towards improving habitat in the greater Mt. Pisgah Area. We hope you'll join us in making 2015 equally successful!
