Home > Latest News > Newsletter – Summer 2017 Edition

Our Summer 2017 Newsletter has arrived! In this issue we celebrate our successes at recent events this spring, highlight some great programs and FoBW events happening this summer, and share useful information about June Beetles and the escaped herbaceous annual, “Balfour’s touch-me-not”.

We are also reaching our to our members to help us fill some much needed volunteer roles. Details on these roles are in our newsletter. We hope to hear from you!

And last but not least, our Summer Work Parties in the Meadow are in full swing! Work Parties are happening every Thursday in June, July, and August, from 7-8pm. It’s fun and easy! Meet us at the tool box in Baltimore Woods Meadow. Go to the bottom (river) end of N Catlin Ave and through the gate, and turn right.
