Restroom Facelift

I Spy…Volunteers in July

There’s been a frenzy of activity at Heathcote. Volunteers, visitors, workshops and more.

July saw a caladium workshop, volunteers giving the restrooms a new paint-job, fence repair, preparation for Heathcote’s Showdown on the Green Charity Golf Tournament and campers learning about the watershed to name a few.

Our Co-Hort volunteers and a generous community of supporters continue to help steward the mission of Heathcote Botanical Gardens to preserve this beloved community asset for today and future generations.

In 2016, Co-Horts racked up more than 12,700 hours dedicated to fulfilling HBG‘s mission! We always have room for more, to learn how you can help, check out our volunteer page, membership page, or make a donation.
