Earth Month Events:
Earth Day Service Project
Saturday, April 21, 9am-1pm
M.L. Red Trabue Nature Reserve, 6566 Post Road
Join the City of Dublin Horticulture team in planting a pollinator garden in M.L. Red Trabue Nature Reserve. Plantings will include trees, shrubs and perennial plants that will attract, feed, and shelter many different varieties of beneficial pollinators. Previously the beds contained a monoculture planting of ornamental grasses. The new plantings will be much more beneficial to the environment, while providing some visual diversity.
Additionally volunteers will plant native species in areas where invasive species have been removed, to help fight off the regrowth of invasive plants while bringing some biodiversity to the natural area. Volunteers will also assist in removing invasive species from other areas. Click here to volunteer!
