Join Mount Grace for Earth Day and help create pollinator habitat at Skyfields Arboretum located at 1461 Old Keene Road in Athol, MA.

We will be building pollinator plots and gardens, as well as planting native perennials and shrubs throughout our headquarters' arboretum. We will be hand pulling invasive Japanese knotweed and glossy buckthorn. As we pull out the invasive, we will be planting a native in its place!

We will be following COVID-19 guidelines: face masks are required, and participants are asked to maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet from other attendees.

If you have your own tools (weed wrench or shovel) and gloves, please bring them. Gloves and mask can be provided. Lunch will be provided.

Please RSVP and direct questions to Stewardship Manager KimLynn Nguyen at or 978-541-1769.
