Volunteer – Winter Gardening

Stoneleigh: A Natural Garden | Thu, February 21, 2019, 8:30am - 11:30am

Did you know more than 20,000 plants have been installed at Stoneleigh: a natural garden? Whew! Grab garden gloves and join staff and fellow volunteers in a winter project to help prep for more planting this spring!

Volunteering with Natural Lands is a great way to learn more about the natural world, give your time to a great cause, and connect with like-minded people.

*NOTE* forecast calls for winter weather this week. If snow falls late Wednesday, or overnight to Thursday morning, this volunteer event will be cancelled, so that staff may plow the parking lot. If it snows early Wednesday, the volunteer work day will still be held, but project may be changed. We appreciate your flexibility, and understand if you decide not to attend in winter weather conditions.

For nearly 80 years, Stoneleigh was the home of the Haas family, which donated the property to Natural Lands in 2016 so that it would remain preserved forever.

The property includes stately trees, winding pathways, and lush gardens that were designed by a number of notable landscape architects over the past century—including the Olmsted Brothers, sons of the famed Frederick Law Olmsted.
