Dig Native Plants for Your Garden (Members Only Event)
October 22, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
In preparation for the wetlands mitigation project in the east meadow at JK Black Oak Wildlife Sanctuary, plants are being relocated from the project area to elsewhere on the property. During this one-time event, Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy members are invited to dig plants for their gardens. The east meadow is full of attractive native plants including many not sold by nurseries (view plant list). Volunteers will be on hand to help you identify the plants. You’ll need to bring your own shovel as well as pots, bags, or boxes to hold the plants you dig. Ticks and poison ivy are present in the meadow so long pants and sleeves, gardening gloves, and insect repellant are recommended. Rain date is October 23. Registration required.
The parking area can accommodate a maximum of 15 cars at a time. There will be two time slots to choose from (9:00-10:30am and 10:45am-12:15pm). PLEASE NOTE: Registration is per car. If two or more people are coming in the same car, only one person should register.
This event is for members of Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy. If you are not yet a member, why not Join Now.
To protect the environmentally sensitive habitat and rare species, the Sanctuary is not open for general public access.
