Calling all Groups: Plenty of Chances to Volunteer
In the early part of 2017, the Charleston Parks Conservancy will be hard at work on some of Charleston’s favorite parks. And we need you to help!
In partnership with the City of Charleston and the Mazyck-Wraggborough Neighborhood Association, the Conservancy has been leading a revitalization of Wragg Square on Meeting Street. Earlier this year, the city refurbished the steps leading up to the park, making the space more accessible. Beginning in late February or early March, the Conservancy will be planting new gardens and installing a large Grecian urn for plantings.
One of the Conservancy’s largest renovation projects to date, Colonial Lake has been delighting residents and visitors since the grand re-opening celebration last June. But the work is far from over. As with any park project, the plants require maintenance and care. Plus, the flower beds sustained damage during Hurricane Matthew flooding.
In the late winter and early spring, the Conservancy will be planting new flowers and shrubs, including replacing those plants that didn’t survive the flooding.
In fall 2017, the Conservancy is planning improvements to the flower beds along Meeting Street. The Conservancy previously planted the beds along King Street and maintains them year-round with the help of volunteers.
Many volunteers will be needed to help with these large-scale, multi-day plantings. This is a great opportunity for businesses, civic clubs and organizations to volunteer as a group.
