Tapawingo Springs Volunteer Day on Oct. 27

The Fresh­wa­ter Land Trust invites you to par­tic­i­pate in a vol­un­teer work­day on Sat­ur­day, Oct. 27, at our Tapawingo Springs Wet­lands Pre­serve! This pre­serve is one of the most impor­tant places the Fresh­wa­ter Land Trust has pro­tected due to its crit­i­cal habi­tat for the endan­gered ver­mil­lion and water­cress darters. Dur­ing this work­day, we will be remov­ing privet and replant­ing native under­story shrubs and trees to increase the poten­tial habi­tat on site and to ben­e­fit the wet­land health.  Vol­un­teers will also get a spe­cial sneak peek at one of our newest prop­er­ties! This work­day is part of a 5 Star Restora­tion Grant pro­vided by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.

Where: Tapawingo Springs Pre­serve, Pin­son, AL
