Volunteers Sought for Cleanup at Butterfly Garden

Friends of Fahnestock have organized a second work day

Butterfly GardenThe Friends of Fahnestock and Hudson Highlands State Parks are reprising their successful Ann Odell Memorial Butterfly Garden volunteer work day. This Saturday, July 14, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. community members are invited to come to the garden at Hubbard Lodge for a mid-summer cleanup. The flowers are blooming and the butterflies are busy — the blueberries are also ripe, while they last.

Participants should bring garden gloves and weeding tools, sunscreen, water and a hat. Among other tasks, they’ll be pulling dogbane (a member of the milkweed family), which can be a skin irritant; if you have sensitive skin, they suggest a long-sleeved shirt and pants. RSVP to Kathy Zeller at [email protected] or call Paul Elconin at 914-276-2618 so that they can get an approximate headcount. Hubbard Lodge is just north of the intersection of Routes 9 and 301, Cold Spring. For more information visit fofhh.org.
