Request for volunteer watering and weeding at Natural Shores demo project

The Natural Shores demonstration project is almost all installed.  The last 54 plants will arrive this week. We need volunteers to do watering and weeding.


Please contact Mark Weisse by e-mail at [email protected] so I can put together a list and schedule. 


Unless there is significant rain, we are watering every day. The best time is early in the morning or in the evening. Watering with a 2-2.5 gallon watering can takes about 45-50 minutes. Sharing the task with your spouse or kids will make it even shorter.

You will get the water out of the lake so water shoes, sandals or knee high boots will make things go quicker.


Weeding is a once a week task but please send a note when it is completed so we can keep track.

If you find any missing or ill plants, please record the tag info and approximate location.


If you are signed up for a day and cannot water, then please find a substitute.  If you cannot find a substitute, then please contact Mark by phone (voice mail okay) or e-mail before 6 PM on your scheduled day.

Hope to hear from you soon.
