Native Plant Events - re-starting in June
Volunteer in the Greenhouse
The first Tuesday of each month the Friends organizes a work day to help care for the native plants in the greenhouse in the summit district of Haleakala National Park. To sign up or to learn more, please contact Mary SantaMaria at 572-1584
Volunteers will help park horticulturist Michelle Osgood with jobs involving caring for the rare, endemic plants being propagated, such as transplanting, weeding, cleaning and preparing seeds for storage or planting, and some pot washing. The park recycles pots which have to be carefully cleaned to prevent the spread of plant diseases. There may sometimes be some out planting, but most of the service work is done inside, and participants can drive up to the location of the work.
Those interested should call Mary at 572-1584 for a reservation.
Participants should bring water, lunch and snacks, and their own gloves if desired. The park will provide other tools. Wear sturdy shoes, and in case of out planting work, bring a hat and sunscreen.
