The Master Naturalist service project planting was a great success this past Sunday. This was a wonderful partnership and testament to the dedication of volunteers and staff at the park who came together to accomplish something good for the park: beautifying our entrance, and installing native plants for the health and habitat of Pocahontas. With funding from the Friends of Pocahontas State Park, and planning, ideas, and hard work from the Master Naturalists, and support from park staff (special thanks to Bob Redenz, David Yeager and Matt Harvey), we were able to plant 5 native trees along Beach Road and in the "triangle", and native flowers and grasses around the entrance sign.
I think it looks great, and I would like to give a big THANKS to all involved!
The Pocahontas chapter of Master Naturalists have agreed to adopt this project and maintain the plants and trees for several years to come.
