Shout-Out to our Volunteers!!!

It was a busy, fun, and rewarding Fall in Garber.  Even with the dry conditions we continued pulling, chopping, and evicting fire prone invasive weeds, and preparing our restoration sites for winter planting and clearing the trails for easier walking.  THANKS EVERYONE – we couldn’t do it without you!  

Working in Fern Glade, our newest restoration site.
The recent light rains have teased the plants into popping up - and us into looking forward to Winter Stewardship.  But before we do, take a look at back at the activities of our hard working and dedicated volunteers in the pictures below.  Then come to Garber, enjoy the trails - and if you see a volunteer, stop to chat and say "Thanks."  And even better - come join us on a workday or a special event!
