CHADRON – The Chadron State College Campus Arboretum Volunteers (CAV) will have a work day Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. Families and friends are welcome.

Bob Henrickson and Justin Evertson from the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum will bring pollinator-friendly grasses, wildflowers and shrubs for CAV volunteers to add to the CSC living fence which runs parallel to 10th Street. CSC horticulturist Lucinda Mays said additional plantings will be along the cross country trail.

CAV volunteers will complete preparation work started by CSC crews, including removing smooth brome grass and developing good topsoil by combining compost with existing soil and grass clippings.

Participants are encouraged to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes, bring water, sunscreen, a hat, gloves, trowels, and should park in the Andrews Hall parking lot. Contact Mays for details at lmays@csc.edu.
