(VH) Stewart Creek Wetland Workday
March 23 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Lewisville Aquatic Ecosystem Research Facility (LAERF) and the City of Frisco have scheduled 2 dates to replant the Green Milkweed plants the chapter participated in harvesting (aka rescued) from a field slated for a future Frisco fire station last fall. The milkweeds have been cared for in a nursery, and are ready to be planted into the Frisco Stewart Creek Wetlands Preserve.
Planting Dates: Saturday, March 23 and Monday, April 1.
Time: 9am – 12 noon (both dates)
Location: Stewart Creek Wetlands Preserve in Frisco. The entrance to the Wetlands is located at the the south end of Teel Drive. Turn south onto Teel from Lebanon Dr. Teel dead ends in about a quarter mile. Park curbside on the northbound side of the street.
For both planting dates, BPTMN Chapter members will be joined by a group from the city of Frisco, UNT Grad Students, and Lynde Dodd (Research Biologist for LAERF) with her team.
Lynde will bring extra shovels and augers, but feel free to bring your own digging and planting tools.
