Volunteer Day at Overlook Park

June 3, 2023 , 9:00 AM 12:00 PM EDT

Volunteers planting native plants at Overlook Park.
  • When: Saturday, June 3, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • Where: Meet at the parking lot at Stoner Grille, 605 Granite Run Drive, Lancaster, PA 17601.
  • Who: Adults; kids are welcome with supervision.
  • Questions: Contact Lamonte Garber.

The entire event will be held outside. Please RSVP so we can contact you if the weather is bad.

Help us celebrate Lancaster Water Week by experiencing the botanical wonders that happen when nature is given a little help in native plant restoration.  Join us to explore Overlook Park’s new pollinator garden and streamside forest restoration, and learn some strategies you can use in your backyard.   For those wanting to give a little back, we’ll do some simple tasks to help these young plants thrive. 

Please wear:

  • Long-sleeved shirts.
  • Long pants.
  • Close-toed shoes. Rubber boots would be handy for wetter spots. We will provide plastic shoe covers if necessary.
  • Gloves (optional)

Feel free to bring any of these tools if you plan to work:

  • Pruning shears and lopping shears for cutting invasives.
  • Hammers for stake maintenance.
  • Garden hoe or steel rake.
