(FULL) Earth Month @ Newlin Grist Mill

Help celebrate nature and protect the environment with our Earth Day volunteer event. Each year, we bring together diverse volunteers from the community, including individuals, families, scout troops, and youth groups, to work on projects that improve habitat for wildlife, protect important natural resources, and preserve the park’s plant and animal communities. Past projects have included planting trees, installing bird boxes, and stream cleanups.

For 2021, we have expanded Earth Day into Earth Month! Instead of one day of projects, we will have four. Each Saturday in April we will meet to plant trees, remove invasive plant species, repair trails, and improve habitat for wetland wildlife! Groups will be scheduled for 3 hour shifts (9am-12pm and 1-4pm).

PLEASE NOTE: The schedule has been filled for Earth Month group projects. If you have a group that would like to volunteer for other park cleanup projects, contact jshahan@newlingristmill.org.
