Tam O’Shanter Wetland Planting

Plants in pile ready to be planted

During the month of June the Natural Resources Department will be planting thousands of native plugs in a wetland being restored at Tam O’ Shanter Park. Volunteer help is needed! The restoration project is partially funded by a grant received from The Clean Ohio Green Space Conservation Program, which covers 75% of the cost of the acquisition, restoration, and trail connectivity projects. As a volunteer you will be helping us to reach the 25% match through the contribution of labor. You will be an integral piece to making this project possible!

All volunteers will have to sign a short term waiver form at arrival. Additionally, volunteers should expect to walk 0.25 miles to the wetland and are advised to wear sunscreen, closed-toe shoes, and bring water. Restrooms and a drinking fountain are also on site!

There will be two planting sessions held each day from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the following days:

June 1, 2, 3, 4
June 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
June 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18
June 21, 22, 23, 24, 25
June 27, 28, 29, 30

Volunteers do not necessarily need to stay the entire time, but it is important to arrive at the starting times so we can walk to the planting site as a group. Meet at the Clubhouse and park in the lower parking lot next to the pond.
