Landscape Workdays

LanDscape WorkDays

Volunteers Invited to Lend A Hand in the Landscape

Every year we set aside special landscape maintenance days for community members to come together and work side by side at Russel Wright's National Historic Landmark woodland garden. Manitoga's landscape staff with guest specialists provide training for teams working on major projects to ready the site for the season and share a hands-on experience of Wright's landscape vision.

It is an opportunity to learn landscaping with native plants, invasive species identification and eradication, build camaraderie working alongside landscape professionals and enthusiasts, and satisfies many organizations' requirements for community service. 

Come for all or part of the day.
Lunch is provided.
Dress for woodland terrain and weather.
