CHADRON – The Chadron State College Campus Arboretum Volunteers (CAV) will host its annual greenery swag work day at the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center Nov. 18 from 9 a.m. to noon.
CSC grounds crew members harvest campus greenery specifically for the event, including varieties of pine, juniper, yew and fir, according to Horticulturist Lucinda Mays. Those in attendance will use the greenery to make swags to decorate the CSC main gates, the Student Center and one to take home.
Participants should dress for working with outdoor materials and bring gloves and hand pruners, in addition to ribbons, bows or other decorations for their greenery swag. All other materials and instruction will be provided. Mays said students and community members of all ages are welcome.
Previous groups have made swags for dorm rooms, front doors and barn doors, according to Mays. For more information, contact Mays at 308-430-4136 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
