This year’s Fletcher Wildlife Garden Spring Fling attracted over thirty new and return volunteers. It was a good time to get caught up with old long time friends, and to talk about activities planned this season for the Garden. The potluck lunch was enjoyed by all. Most people join the Fletcher volunteer group to have an excuse to get out and work in the out of doors. We get free exercise and at the same time we are maintaining our property, gardens and ponds as habitats for indigenous plants, trees and bushes, that in turn attract and sustain a wide variety of animal, bird and insect life. The social aspect of being volunteer, like get-togethers such as the Volunteer Spring Fling is a bonus.
