Native Lakeshore Restoration – Volunteer Planting
Saturday, September 24, Time TBD | Madison, WI
Join us for a day of planting at the Wisconsin Executive Residence!
The Executive Residence has served as the official residence of Wisconsin Governors and their families since 1949. It sits on 3.7 acres in Maple Bluff Wisconsin and includes 300 feet of shoreline on Lake Mendota. The Executive Residence Native Lakeshore Restoration is an effort to restore 294 linear feet of Lake Mendota shoreline at the Executive Residence to native plants. Phase 1 of the project this fall includes removing turf and planting 1,776 native plants on 3,067 square feet. Interested in volunteering to help with this project? Sign up here. Note: space may be limited – volunteers will be accepted as space allows.
