Dudley National Public Lands DaySaturday, September 22, 2018 09:30am - 12:30pm

This is the nation's largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve America's public lands.  We will be re-planting some of the original Dudley plants that have disappeared. This is a special opportunity to bring these heritage plants back to the gardens. We will also remove exotic plants and clean-up trails. Groups, families and individuals are welcome. Please meet at the Visitors Center.  Dress appropriately, wear closed toe shoes, and bring work gloves, bug spray and a hand trowel or loppers. A day to give, a lifetime to enjoy!
