Native Plant Restoration and Nursery Workdays
Join volunteers in restoration plantings in Arlington’s parks every fall and spring. All year round, volunteers also plant locally collected seeds and tend seedlings at our nursery, as part of the first step in returning native plants to Arlington’s parks. Nursery workdays are held every Tuesday afternoon from 2-4 p.m. at our nursery in Barcroft Park. Contact email@example.com to learn more or for location directions.
Participate in a BioBlitz or the City Nature Challenge – or participate in one of the many iNaturalist projects in the county. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
Native Plant of the Month
North America's largest indigenous fruit is the Pawpaw, Asimina triloba, each attaining 3-6 inches in length when ripe. They are in the Custard-apple family Annonaceae, this genus being the Northern most members of this mostly tropical family. Like the Annonas and Cherimoyas I've eaten in Latin America, these too are quite edible. Learn more here.
