News: Partners for Plants: Restoring Blue Hills Reservation Habitat


August 15, 2017

Partners for Plants is a joint habitat restoration program of the GCA Conservation and Horticulture Committees. Its purpose is to facilitate hands-on projects between local GCA clubs and land managers on federal, state, local, and other significant public lands. Since 1992, there have been nearly 400 projects across the United States. The Milton Garden Club is restoring a native plant garden at the entrance to Blue Hills Trailside Museum, interpretive center for Blue Hills Reservation, a 6,000-acre state park in Norfolk County, Massachusetts. The club recently created a rain garden under a downspout there to prevent rainwater from running across a path and washing away fertile soil in the restoration area.
