Tideman Johnson Work Party Feb 1.

img_fotj_logoHowdy Friends of Tideman Johnson,

I, for one, am happy that he rain has returned.  It helps the natives we planted last month get properly settled in, and it’ll make the ground nice and soft this coming Saturday.  We have two tasks ahead of us:

  1. Plant the last few native shrubs left over from last month
  2. Remove ivy and the invasives from the woodland

So, you can take your pick!

Saturday February 1, 2014, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Tideman Johnson Park at the boardwalk
Tools and refreshments provided

We hope to see you out there!
