Join South Wake Conservationists’ volunteers and the Art Park’s staff for a Trees-4-Trash native pollinator planting event at the NC Museum of Art Park, 2110 Blue Ridge Rd, Raleigh, NC 27607 on May 21, 2021, 9:00 am – 12 pm. Trees4Trash is a collaborative program of North Carolina Wildlife Federation and Plastic Ocean Project that tackles the issue of trash’s impacts on wildlife head-on by proactively organizing garbage clean-ups, followed by native tree and pollinator plant installations. For every 25 pounds of trash collected, Trees4Trash plants a tree and/or pollinator plants to promote healthy wildlife habitat, mitigate climate change, and buffer storm water runoff and sediment load in waterways.
For this native pollinator planting event, there are bathrooms available for volunteers and tools are provided. Volunteers should bring their own gloves and water though. We will be meeting in the courtyard outside the two main art museum buildings at 9:00am. NCWF COVID-19 protocols will need to be followed and a NCDR self-screening checklist will need to be completed prior to arriving at the park for volunteering. Register here.
