Three Cheers for Volunteers!

We love our volunteers here at Dahlem.  If it weren’t for their dedication and willingness to help us out, we’d be overwhelmed with all the work that needs to be done here.

On Thursdays, the Cut and Dab Society comes out to help our Stewardship Coordinator with the removal of invasive species.  Last week they tackled the invasive willows around the pond in front of our building.

 

Each willow was dug out by hand and removed from the premises.

And to replace them, the group planted some natives that will benefit local wildlife, like the highbush cranberry below.

So, here’s a heartfelt thank you to all our volunteers!  Whether they are wrestling unwanted vegetation, or serving meals to hungry vendors, or helping fold newsletters…however they choose to help us out, they are appreciated more than they know.  Thank You!
