Wildlife GardenOver the past few years, the Minnieville Buffer Project near K9 Gunner Memorial Dog Park has helped to transform an area of land from an environmental problem, into a beautiful area that showcases Virginia’s native plants.

With warmer weather approaching, we now need your help getting the buffer area ready for the Spring. In order to keep this area looking clean and beautiful, we need your help with a variety of tasks such as weeding, pruning, and watering to ensure that the buffer continues to provide all of its services to the environment and the community. Come on down to the Minnieville Buffer near K9 Gunner Memorial Dog Park and make sure to wear long pants, sturdy shoes, and a hat to keep off that sun!

We are so excited to see what the future holds for this area, and hope that you will come out and join us to keep our community beautiful.

  • Saturday, May 14: 10:00am-12:00pm
