A Green Clearing

All are encouraged to join in the Amberley Green Clearing events which resume next week.  Come help care for the trees on this beautiful property.  The dates are the first Thursday of every month – July 7th, August 4th, September 1st, and October 6th.  The group will meet at 6:30 pm in the parking lot of Amberley Green. The first activity will be to remove the invasive honeysuckle from the river birch and pine tree beds that were worked on last year.  With more participants, these work sessions will further enhance Amberley Green.  An added reward is making new friends from the community while contributing to the restoration of the trees.  Please join the team!  No sign-up required.
