Pollinator Garden Project
WHAT: Planting a Pollinator Garden @ Woodland Park
WHEN: November 21, 8am to 12pM, rain or shine!
WHERE: Woodland Park, near tennis courts
Woodland Park is fortunate to be one of the areas selected by the Houston Parks and Recreation Department (HPARD) for a pollinator garden. A pollinator garden consists of native flowers, grasses, shrubs and trees that attract natural pollinators like bees and butterflies. The Friends of Woodland Park (FWP) are collaborating with HPARD on creating the garden but we can't do it alone — we need your help!
Bring the entire family for a fun morning at the park. Get to know neighbors, plant some native flowers and enjoy the free donuts, coffee, water, snacks and fruit. Any amount of time you have to help with this project will be appreciated. All required tools, gloves and insect repellant will be provided. We strongly recommend long sleeves, long pants and closed shoes or boots. A parent or guardian must sign a waiver for volunteers under age 18. If you're at all interested in joining us (even just the littlest bit!) please register so we can estimate the number of people to expect.
Please consider a donation of approved native plants. You have the option of providing plants from your garden or purchasing at a nursery.
Note: If you live in Woodland Heights FWP will be available to pick up your plants at your home. If you live outside of the Woodland Heights area we ask that you deliver your plants to 3011 Morrison no later than Wednesday, Nov. 18th. Donated plants should not be delivered to the park.
Please register your plant donation.
Help FWP Purchase Plants
A tax-deductible contribution to FWP towards the purchase of native plants is another way you can help. Monetary donations are needed no later than Wednesday, November 18, so that plants can be purchased prior to planting day.
If you have any questions about donating to the pollinator garden (e.g. non-native plant donations, questions about FWP, etc.) please get in touch.
