Planting Swamp Milkweed at Bass Lake Park

We finally got our tray of 28 swamp milkweed plants where they belong – in the sun with wet clay at their feet. These three-foot plants came from the NCWF Clean and Green Program and were planted along the shore of Bass Lake by Monty and Bill, assisted by Bass Lake Park’s Melinda London, Program Assistant at the park. These plants should be a great source of food and shelter to support the Monarch’s, as they migrate through the area. While we were at it, we tackled some of the weeds at SWC’s new pollinator garden in the park near the picnic shelter. The pollinator plants are thriving, but so are the weeds. We will schedule another workday to tackle those.
