Hollow Fields Volunteer Workday, Richmond

Help to install bluebird boxes that will double as trail markers through the open fields!

Tuesday, May 22nd 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

This property has over 40 acres of open-managed fields and in the fall after mowing and pre-spring before the grasses have grown, navigating the trail system can be tricky. The installation of blue bird boxes along the trail in the open fields will help with navigation!

What to Bring: BNRC will provide all tools and gloves. Please wear sturdy shoes and bring water and lunch.
