AmeriCorps hosts 'DeWitt Park Wildlife Planting Project' in Batavia

Genesee County AmeriCorps will host a planting project at Batavia's DeWitt Recreation Area, 119 Cedar St., on April 24 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Around 50 volunteers are needed.

The goal of this project is to remove invasive plant species from the park and to raise plants designed to reduce soil erosion, provide the wildlife with food and shelter, and give visitors something more aesthetically pleasing to look at.

Supplies and water will be available, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own water as well.

The day will include activities for youth, and lunch will be provided.

Anyone interested in participating in or making a donation to this project should call the Genesee County Youth Bureau at 344-3960 and ask to speak to Lauren. Information is also available on Facebook (search "DeWitt Planting Project").

Event Date and Time: 
Saturday, April 24, 2010 - 9:00am to 3:00pm
