Lots of outdoor activities await its SW neighbors

The Bartram’s Garden is full of joyous outdoors opportunities these days! Just go to their website at (www.bartramsgarden.org ) for a thorough run-down on the events and activities. Of special note are:
Volunteer Days (March 27 and April 10): Register immediately for the March 27 (or April 10) Horticulture Volunteer Day and a chance to remove plant growth that doesn’t belong in the Garden (Invasive species). Or work in the green house to cultivate plants and seedlings for sale or transplanting out in the gardens.
Volunteer Days begin at 9:00 a.m. and provide a practical way to help preserve our wonderful Southwest treasure and one of the outstanding natural locations in the area. Masks are required and persons with Covid-19 symptoms are respectfully requested to wait until after they subside.
