Over thirty volunteers gathered on Saturday, April 14 to plant over 1,000 native grasses and wildflowers. Attendees included local garden club members, NC Botanical Garden staff and volunteers, local native landscapers, faculty members from the environmental schools of Duke and UNC, and members of the Church of the Advocate. Signage was also installed around the pond, which identifies by photo and description the plants that are growing. The signs are currently featured in the “Field Guide” section of this website.
