Wet Meadow Planting Photo Stream

Planting Wildflowers in the Sunshine

The planting celebration on Sunday, May 23, was a family affair! Kids, parents, and grandparents from near and far planted wildflowers at Buhr Park.

Kids of all ages had fun while learning to work together on a project that will catch rainwater and add beauty to the park.
