Nannen Arboretum Clean Up 2019

The Nannen Arboretum, located at 28 Parkside Drive in Ellicottville, is known as “The Jewel in the Crown of Ellicottville”. It is a sanctuary for hundreds of trees, shrubs, perennial flowers, herbs and nature walks. It is managed by the Nannen Arboretum Society a not-for-profit organization which relies on voluntary support for maintenance and improvement of the facility. The Society is hosting a Volunteer Recruitment Open House at the arboretum on Saturday, April 27, 11:00 a.m. – noon. Join us for a cup of coffee and walk through the arboretum grounds to learn about the type of volunteer tasks available to you:

  • Removing branches on the ground as a result of recent tree service pruning and the ongoing winds.
  • Painting and/or sealing benches.
  • Weeding/mulching in gardens throughout the arboretum.
  • Pruning trees and shrubs
  • Herb Garden Renovation – adopt an Herb Garden

The Society and volunteers have regular work days every Monday from 9:30 a.m. to noon. We will be in ‘clean up’ mode in the early weeks and have scheduled three additional special CLEAN UP days in May to encourage the community to join us.

  • Thursday, May 9, 2019, 9:00 – noon
  • Saturday, May 18, 2019, 9:00 – noon
  • Monday, May 20, 2019, 9:00 – noon

In case of rain or snow, the CLEAN UP day will be rescheduled. Dress appropriately for the weather and bring your gloves and favorite gardening tool or just bring yourself.
