March Month­ly Ser­vice Day resched­uled to March 21 due to weather.

Do you have a green thumb? Join the Trust for Gov­er­nors Island hor­ti­cul­ture team to care for the nat­ur­al land­scapes through month­ly drop-in ser­vice days. Vol­un­teers pro­vide invalu­able sup­port to Gov­er­nors Island’s 120 acres of beau­ti­ful land­scapes as we strive to cre­ate bio­di­verse and beau­ti­ful envi­ron­ments for both humans and wildlife to enjoy.

This month, vol­un­teers be work­ing on spring cut­back at the ADA entrance to Out­look Hill. Dur­ing the win­ter, our hor­ti­cul­ture team leaves stalks, seed heads and dried grass­es stand­ing to pro­vide win­ter habi­tat for birds, insects and oth­er ani­mals. Mak­ing room for new spring growth involves spring cut­back by hand. In addi­tion to cut­back, vol­un­teers will also help prep a gar­den plot using eco­log­i­cal land­scape tech­niques to put a weed man­age­ment sys­tem into place. Sign up to par­tic­i­pate and learn all about man­ag­ing inva­sive species and build­ing bio­di­verse habi­tats on Gov­er­nors Island!

No gar­den­ing expe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary. Gloves, tools, and sup­plies will be pro­vid­ed to all volunteers.
