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.

When: Saturday October 27 at 9:00 am until noon
Where: Tapawingo Springs Preserve, Pinson, AL
