Help plant pollinators!

Join Big Thicket staff revitalize the native plant garden at the visitor center. Volunteers will clear the garden of old and dying plants, remove the old weed barrier, put in new weed barriers, and plants in areas that need new plants. The final step will be to add new bedding to the garden.

Volunteers are encouraged to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes, and to bring water, bug spray, and sunscreen.
