Conservation Park work day set
Volunteers are now being sought to help upgrade Bolton Conservation Park on a work day scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday May 11.
The existing gardens are to be expanded by 12 to 16 beds, gates will be replaced and fencing repaired. Also, new mulch needs to be applied to all paths.
Volunteeers are asked to bring any chainsaws, clippers, shovels and rakes they have to get the job done.
Outside work will include restoring and expanding trails — including adding mulch and installing signs along pathways.
Tools needed for this job include pointed shovels, post-hole diggers, sturdy rakes and ATVs with the capacity of hauling mulch to trail sites.
Ted and Jane Caldwell will be grilling hamburgers and hot dogs — and volunteers are welcome to bring any additional food. For details, call Ted or Jane at 644-2343.
