Thanks to a grant from the National Wildlife Federation (, COS and a few other local congregations are installing new pollinator/rain gardens on their properties. With the help of the Plaster Creek Stewards, we plan to build ours on July 30th in the swale that collects run-off from our east parking lot.

Volunteers are needed from 8:00-10:00, 10:00-noon, 12:30-2:30 pm, and 2:30-4:30 pm.
