High Plains Environmental Center (HPEC) is creating a 20,000 square foot educational garden that will demonstrate the benefits to conservation of water resources and plant/pollinator relationships derived through landscaping with Colorado native plants. HPEC will plant 31 trees, 212 shrubs, and several thousand grasses and perennials supplied from HPEC’s native plant propagation nursery throughout the months of April and May. Volunteers will engage in a rewarding project because in addition to planting and seeing tangible results, they will also learn about native plants and their importance for creating habitat and water conservation. HPEC staff alone cannot complete this large-scale project so we need volunteers to help us finish the garden by May 13, 2017. This is an ongoing project throughout April and May, so we are asking for volunteers to help us on Saturday’s during those months.
