To promote and preserve the beauty of our community
Crofton Village Garden Club is sponsoring a Watershed Stewards Academy Capstone Project. A community tree planting will take place at Crofton Library on Saturday, November 13, 2021 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Get a hands-on lesson in how to plant and maintain a tree, then practice what you learn by helping to plant 20 native trees at the Library. Learn about the value of our tree canopy and its relationship to our streams, waterways, Chesapeake Bay, and the animals it supports.
Holes will be dug by a contractor – just bring your gloves and shovel! Crofton Library is located at 1691 Reidel Road, Crofton. For additional information on the event, contact Jim MacNicholl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2007 the U.S. Senate, initiated by Pollinator Partnership under Laurie Davies Adams, unanimously approved and designated a week in June as National Pollinator Week, marking a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations. Pollinating animals, including bees, birds, butterflies, bats, beetles and others, are vital to our delicate ecosystem, supporting terrestrial wildlife, providing healthy watershed, and more.
National Pollinator Week, June 21-27, 2021, is a week to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what we can do to protect them. For additional information on protecting pollinators, click the button below.
