NC Museum of Art Park Pollinator Planting Event

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.

  1. Hello. I have a couple of questions about this event. Can my kids come and help (ages 12 and 13), and do we have to stay the whole time? Thanks, Rachel Woods

  2. Yes, we would love to have you and your family join us. Kids are always welcome to help plant. Please feel free to leave whenever you need to – no need to stay the full three hours. See you there!

  3. Hi Rachel,

    Yes, your kids can come and help. No, you don’t have to stay the whole time.

    Thanks for your interest in this event and attending our meeting the other night.
