Song Bird & Pollinator Meadow Planting at Marsh's Falls - October 12, 10:30AM

Saturday, October 12 - Song Bird & Pollinator Meadow Planting #2, 10:30am start 
We are well along the way to creating a more inviting habitat for songbirds and pollinators at Marsh's Falls. In early June, 10 volunteers helped to get us started on a naturalized conversion of the meadow lands near our Education Centre.

Our second planting (seeding) is happening on October 12 at 10:30am. If you are able to join us email registration@lakeofbaysheritage.ca.  We'll have the seeds on site.  Refreshments too. Please bring a garden rake (not a fan rake) to scratch the earth for planting the seeds, and clean boots to avoid tracking in invasive species lurking in dry mud in boot treads. As a bonus, you will experience the Falls in their autumn splendour.

Our Results
