Fifth Annual Planting Day on the Preserve
9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Foxfield Preserve will be holding its 5th annual Planting Day on the Preserve in conjunction with The Wilderness Center’s annual Native Plant Sale & Gardening Seminar. The Native Plant Sale is a wonderful opportunity to help Foxfield Preserve in our restoration efforts, while beautifying the final resting place of a loved one. There will be a wide selection of native plants available for sale, including many plants which could be selected as an appropriate memorial. Wilderness Center staff and volunteers will be on-hand from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. to assist in choosing varieties and planting your selections.
