Mangrove Chapter at Earth Day 2021

Mangrove Chapter at Earth Day

Mangrove Chapter hosted a table at the Earth Day event at Cedar Point Environmental Park in April, offering information on native plants, attracting birds, feeding butterflies and their caterpillars, and growing beautiful wildflowers. A guided hike attracted several walkers who explored the park. Chapter volunteers helped gardeners make selections from the stock of native plants grown and donated by chapter members, and although plant tables were full at the beginning, they were much emptier by the end of the day.
