Here is our Wish List, along with the reasons for being on our list.
We’re going with the “It doesn’t hurt to ask” approach! Please know that every little bit helps.
- (1) Van or 4 door-Truck – we are in need of a reliable, safe form of transportation to host and attend events across the watershed. Ideally, this vehicle would have the capacity to tow our 15′ trailer full of plants/equipment. Also, we often have several events happening at the same time and only have one very old (sometimes very scary) van.
- (10) Dissecting Microscopes – we would like to offer in-house training for teachers, students, and volunteers that supplements our existing education and monitoring programs.
- (many) Old newspapers – for weed control and moisture retention in our rain gardens
- (12) Shovels – to help with our rain garden plantings and maintenance
- (1) Sod cutter – to make our rain garden plantings easier on the back – and to make larger ones!
- (2) Sturdy wheelbarrow(s) – preferably the type with 2 wheels so volunteers who don’t garden much can use them without struggling.
- (1) Rototiller – to help with our rain garden plantings
- (2) Hard rakes – to help with our rain garden plantings and maintenance
- (1) Post-hole digger – to help with our rain garden plantings
- (1) Hay fork for mulch – to help with our rain garden plantings and maintenance
- (1) Digging bar – to help with our rain garden plantings
- (1) Soil tamper – to help with our rain garden plantings
