Volunteers Needed for Planting in Forest Hill Park

Reedy Creek Coalition and Friends of Forest Hill Park will be planting shrubs and some trees around the lake in Forest Hill Park on Saturday, November 7.  We will begin at 0900 and expect to be finished by 1200. 

  • Saturday, Nov 7 0900-1200
  • Meet at the gazebo down by the lake.
  • A mask is required and must be worn when you are anywhere near others.
  • Bring your own gloves.
  • Tools provided for the planting.

Our planting list includes all native species.  The goal is to help reduce erosion as well as provide habitat and food sources for our park critters.  

  • Button Bush
  • Arrowwood viburnum
  • Gray dogwood
  • Bay Berry
  • Spice bush
  • Sycamore
  • Swamp rose
  • Alder

In addition we will be planting several American chestnut cultivars in another area of the park.
