Join your neighbors to restore the forest near Miller Creek, continuing the work that has been done by previous volunteers since 2007. Come visit with neighbors and learn about plants while improving the health of the creek!

No experience is necessary, and gloves, tools, and light refreshments are provided!  Please RSVP so we can plan for tools and snacks!
