Fall Planting Day Oct 9th At Meadow Croft
October 9, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Fall Planting Day takes place on the second Monday of October, Columbus Day for some, Indigenous Peoples Day for others. For The Long Island Conservancy, it is Indigenous Plants Day. It is at this time of year before the first frost when we plant for the spring. Not everything can be planted in the fall, but there will be a lot we will want to get into the ground before winter.
With Fall Planting Day, students and whole schools can log service time planting natives that day right in their community under the guidance of Long Island Conservancy volunteers. You could be harvesting native wildflower seeds, or constructing a bioswale, or planting rare American Chestnut saplings. Tell us what you would like to be doing in your community on Fall Planting Day by contacting us below.
At The Long Island Conservancy, it is our mission to teach communities how to create native habitat, how to restore local nature. Our local species are depending on us. Let us know if you’d like to help plant natives at Meadow Croft Monday Oct 9th between 10-1 by letting us know below as well. Thank you! Meadow Croft, a “Roosevelt Estate” is a jewel, as you will see!
