Volunteers Sought to Help Plant Bulbs This Saturday at Peters Park

Friends of Peters Park to plant the Daffodil Bulbs on Saturday, Nov. 20, from 9 to 11 a.m. at the park.

Tools from the city will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own trowel, shovel, and gloves. 

The bulbs need to be planted 8 inches deep so that the squirrels don’t dig them out and eat them. During the morning, participants will take part in a general clean-up of the park as well. 

This is in conjunction with the city’s Love Your Block event.
