ADK Garden Club Volunteering



ADK Garden Club Volunteering


Join CATS in supporting the ADK Garden Club through volunteering,  on friday, April 12th at 10 A.M.


This project is in the beautiful Essex Quarry Nature Preserve, owned by CATS. Come join the ADK Garden Club in tackling the invasive species threatening the area, and learning natural ways to manage them. 


We will begin work again restoring the forest ecosystem at the Essex Quarry Nature Preserve. During the month of April, we will focus on digging up & pulling honeysuckle, and on finding and photographing spring ephemerals and oak seedlings. We will also be planting cuttings (elderberry, willow, dogwood) into the ground where we removed buckthorn and other invasives last year. 


WHAT TO BRING:  If you have them, please bring a shovel, clippers, a hand hoe, sturdy shoes, and garden gloves. 


DIRECTIONS: We will meet at the Essex Quarry Nature Preserve in Essex, NY. Click here for the link for directions on Google Maps.


REGISTRATION: Please register by emailing Nancy Budd here, or just show up at the Quarry Friday morning.
