Event Highlight

Fall Plantemonium
2023

In October at the Rosewood Nature Study Area we held our annual Fall Plantemonium! We had a great time spending the morning planting native plants into the wetlands in order to restore the natural ecosystem and reduce invasive species.

Thank you to everyone who came out and volunteered their time!
