May 20 – Pollinator Planting in New Brunswick’s Buccleuch Park

Please join the LRWP, New Brunswick Environmental Commission, New Brunswick Parks & Gardens Commission, Rutgers’ Collaborative Center, and the New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architecture to help plant milkweed in our pollinator garden in New Brunswick’s Buccleuch Park. At this event we will focus on planting hundreds of milkweed plants started from seed by community members!

This effort is an outgrowth of the LRWP’s effort to improve habitat connectivity in our urban watershed, and we have been working on this project for 2+ years. Please plan to bring (if you have them) garden gloves, trowels and smaller hand tools, shovels and rakes, compost, watering cans. PLEASE LABEL YOUR TOOLS!

We will be working across from the gazebo next to the wood chips in Buccleuch Park (321 Easton Ave, New Brunswick, NJ 08901) from 10-noon.
