ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. – The Elkhart County Parks hosted volunteers at the Boot Lake Nature Preserve to care for the park on Saturday.
The nature preserve is the second largest park in Elkhart County and is 300 acres of prairie, wetlands and woods.
The volunteer opportunity taught volunteers how to identify native plants and collect seeds for future projects.
“Just continues to grow. Everything continues to grow. If we continue taking down we need to replenish what we’ve taken away from the earth that’s hopefully what we’re doing replenishing it so our children can enjoy what we have,” volunteer Danny Landis said.
Volunteers took dried seeds from grasses to save for replenishing areas throughout the nature preserve and other local parks.
Anyone who would like to get involved with volunteering opportunities can find the Elkhart Parks link on our website.
