Volunteer Opportunity: Gardening at Hawk Cliff Woods


Do you love gardening? Then consider helping us out at the Auzins Community Wildflower Garden.

The Auzins Community Wildflower Garden at Hawk Cliff Woods is planted with all native perennial plants that are beautiful and hardy choices for landscaping. The garden serves as a demonstration site for native plant gardening as well as a source of seeds for interested community members who want to grow native plants for their own gardens.

Why native plants?

Native plants provide food and habitat for birds, insects, and other creatures while requiring less care in terms of watering, pesticides, and fertilizers, than exotic landscaping plants. It's a win-win for nature and gardeners alike.

We are looking for help with garden maintenance, primarily weeding and keeping the trail clear. 

What to bring

  • This is an outdoor event so please bring whatever you need to be comfortable, such as sunscreen, bug spray, and good shoes. As well, be sure to bring any food and water you might need. 
  • We can provide gardening gloves, knee pads, and tools but feel free to bring your own if you prefer. 
  • Hawk Cliff is a great place to see flowers, birds, and wildlife, so bring your binoculars, camera, and field guides if you have them.

Please note: this event is weather dependent. In the case of cancellations, we will send out an email to everyone who is registered the day before the event.
