Ellicott Creek Park
A RestoreCorps volunteer opportunity will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 9 at Ellicott Creek Park, 310 Creekside Dr., Tonawanda. The group will convene in the parking lot off Ellicott Creek Road near the intersection with Niagara Falls Boulevard (near the kayak launch).
Volunteers will be working in groups of two to complete the day’s work. Each group will be utilizing masonry hammers and hand tools to install 2-foot-long stakes along the shoreline (all tools will be provided). Volunteers should be able to walk on uneven ground and be able to kneel and bend as needed to accomplish the planting tasks.
After a planting demonstration, half of the group will remain at the planting site near the kayak launch and the other half will walk to a shoreline restoration site located within the main park approximately 300 yards away.
Please arrive about 10 minutes early to allow enough time to park and sign-in prior to the start of the planting event.
