Chassahowitzka River spring restoration
November 9, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
9 to noon on Saturday, Nov 9th at the Chassahowitzka Campground boat ramp.
We are excited to announce that we are in the final phases of the springs restoration project at the Chassahowitzka Campground Boat ramp! We put in native plant gardens in the picnic and springs area. This adds very beneficial natural habitat and provides aesthetic value for everyone to enjoy including the wildlife! And now we are improving the springs itself!
We will need volunteers to help with planting, weeding, and de-mucking to remove silt and debris covering the sandy bottom and plugging the vent hole of the spring. Come out and volunteer! Bring a mucking shovel if you have one.
