Every year, EarthShare matches up corporations and non-profits in both the Raleigh and Charlotte areas to participate in a variety of workdays to make a positive impact on our natural environment. This year, South Wake Conservationists was matched up with seven enthusiastic volunteers from the environmental law practice of The Law Offices of F. Bryan Brice, Jr. Together with five members of the chapter, we tackled a project to create a variety of pollinator gardens at SWC’s newest Garden for Wildlife site, Yates Mill County Park.
This high-energy group planted 170 native perennials and 45 native shrubs in five different areas at Yates Mill County Park. They also mulched one additional area SWC planted last month to round out the day. Digging, planting and mulching was running concurrently in all five areas – dirt was flying, tools were clanging, and the result was beautiful!
It was a fun time, and new friendships were forged while working, conversing, and laughing throughout the afternoon. We look forward to seeing these dedicated conservationists at future SWC activities and meetings!
