Watermark Art Center is looking for volunteers to tend the community pollinator garden – Bemidji Pioneer
BEMIDJI — Community members, student groups and clubs interested in native plants are invited to help maintain Watermark’s pollinator gardens this summer.
“Green thumb or not, lend a hand to help bring beauty and biodiversity to the community of downtown Bemidji,” a statement read.
Weather permitting, the Garden Team will meet twice a month throughout the summer from 4-6pm on the second and fourth Tuesdays through August. General duties include weeding, pruning and debris removal.
Depending on the season, there may be opportunities to divide perennials or collect seeds. Watermark will have an assortment of gardening tools, but encourages volunteers to bring their own gloves and tools.
All skill levels are welcome. No registration is necessary, volunteers are welcome to come at their convenience, but larger groups should call ahead if possible.
More volunteer information, including the history of the garden, is available at watermarkartcenter.org/pollinator-rain-gardens or by calling (218)-444-7570.
Watermark is free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and is located at 505 Bemidji Ave. NOT.
