Audobon Society seeks help at nature park

October 20, 2018

HARLINGEN — The Arroyo Colorado Audubon Society will be at work today at Hugh Ramsey Nature Park cleaning up and planting native species and is seeking help from volunteers.

Today’s event begins at 7:30 this morning and wraps up by 9:30. If raining, the work will be cancelled.

“ It is not just a cleanup of trash but non-native plant removal and other improvements to the native habitat,” said Norma Friedrich, president of the Arroyo Colorado Audubon Society.

“ Tomorrow for the Ramsey Park work day we will be planting native plants in the area of recently placed signs on Retama Trail,” Friedrich said Friday. “The new signs are educational as to the bio-retention drainage, plants and animals that benefit from the ponds created and are very attractive and sturdy.”
