North Tonawanda Botanical Garden


RestoreCorps needs volunteers to plant plugs at two sessions.

A session will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27 at the North Tonawanda Botanical Gardens, 1825 Sweeney St., North Tonawanda. The rain date will be Thursday, Sept. 29.

Another session will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1 at Tifft Nature Preserve, 1200 Fuhrmann Blvd., Buffalo. The rain date will be Sunday, Oct. 2.

During this event, volunteers will use hand tools (garden trowels, hori-hori garden tools, and/or dill augers) to install deep cell landscape plugs, which have a rootball that is 2”-wide by 5”-deep. Each volunteer should expect to plant between 25 – 35 plants during a 2-hour event. The plantings will occur within existing restoration areas, so volunteers should be able to walk on uneven ground and be able to kneel and bend as needed to accomplish the planting tasks.
