Volunteer at Silver Creek Preserve

Enjoy a day at Silver Creek Preserve while helping to restore habitat and maintain facilities. The preserve needs volunteers throughout the spring to help with a variety of tasks. Contact Lynea Newcomer at or Dayna Smith at for more details.

April 3-7: Four people needed to help plant native rushes.

May: 13-14 - Ten people per day needed to install bio-logs and other re-vegetation materials in portions of Stalker Creek. This is part of an on-going restoration aimed at enhancing trout spawning and rearing habitat as well as stream bank habitat for birds and mammals.

Last two weeks of May - Six people needed to rebuild/expand garden and possibly construct small greenhouse/nurser.

Mid-June - 6 to 8 people needed to move several access trails around Kilpatrick Pond (days of project duration not yet determined).

We hope you will see an opportunity to lend a hand. For each one we will provide refreshments and mid-day meals. Come work out some of your spring fever!
