Come help the Montclair Branch turn the wild back yard into a garden paradise! (A low-water-use, bird-and-butterfly-friendly, native plants paradise!) They’re collecting donated native plants and need lots of extra hands to help create space, plant, and care for these new additions to our backyard. Choose between two dates or come for both! Saturdays, November 16 & 23, 10:00am-3:00pm.
