Bishop Wild Bird Sanctuary, Coldstream

Bishop Wild Bird Sanctuary is hosting a Xeriscape Planting and Garden Party event this weekend and you’re invited to attend. Saturday, Apr. 30, 9am to 4pm and Sunday May 1, 11am to 4pm.

It should be enjoyable and informative with numerous Master Gardeners on-site both days to work with and learn from. We will be installing a total of over 1200 individual native plants into the new gardens. The beauty of it, in part, is that all the tough digging has already been done thanks to the many volunteers that made it out the weekend before Easter! Bbq lunch and refreshments will be served so no need to bring anything other than a pair of garden gloves and any small hand tools you might use in your own garden to plant new plants, if you have one. Feel free to invite a friend along and kids of all ages are welcome too!

I look forward to seeing you at the sanctuary.
