Native plantings at Lincoln Trail Homestead SP — Help is Needed!!
October 31 @ 9:00 am
Lincoln Trail Homestead State Park and Memorial will be closing its gate on November 1st. Our greatest wish is that you have enjoyed the park this season and have many happy memories spent there. The park offered a very nice alternative for handling Covid-19. Many improvements were made to improve the park however we have one more project that must be completed before the park closes for the winter.
Money from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation’s Stewardship Challenge Grant allowed us to purchase 100 native plants to be planted throughout the park. Unfortunately the nursery just delivered the plants at this late date. Due to the lateness of the delivered plants as well as inclement weather, we must work very quickly, before November 1st, to get them planted. This Saturday, October 31st at 9:00 AM, we are meeting at the park to plant these 100 native plants.
We really need as many volunteers that can to come to the park and help. If we have plenty of help this project can be quickly accomplished. Please, if you have time, any amount will be appreciated, please consider helping us out. Please contact Melody Arnold at email@example.com letting her you can help.
