Thanks to everyone who shopped our Native Plant Sale. A cold and blustery day didn't stop many of you from shopping. The selection was huge - many gardners said they felt like a "kid in a candy store". If you missed our sale, you'll have another chance this fall. We will bring back the large selection of native grasses, perennials, and shrubs for you to spruce up your yard and help your local ecology.
Due to utility repair work conducted by Ameren during the winter months, Chautauqua Bottom's David Kenney Trail is in rough shape. The trail is open, but site conditions are very muddy.
We are hoping to begin resotration work shortly, and it will continue over the next couple of months. Check back here to find out updates on trail conditions as work gets underway.
Saturday June 1st, 9:00 -11:00 am

Green Earth holds a volunteers workday the third Saturday of each month (check our events calendar for upcoming times and locations), but one Saturday a month simply isn't enough! We are often approached by student groups, community groups, and Green Earth trail users about hosting special workdays. Sometimes a group is looking for a good cause they can get behind, or someone sees a problem on a trail and they want to be part of the solution - whatever the reason we are happy to accommodate. Check out our photo gallery for more pictures of Green Earth's impressive volunteer force.
