Shepherd’s Corner Celebrates Earth Day in the Wetlands

It was full speed ahead for Shepherd’s Corner Planting Day on Saturday, April 20.

A large group of volunteers, including some of our very own Sisters and groups of teenagers from local high schools and college, showed up with enthusiasm and determination to get the job done (in somewhat swampy conditions).

The hole-digging and planting were completed in record time for two hundred trees, all native to Ohio. They will provide a natural screen for Shepherd’s Corner Wetland Restoration Area.

The planting was made possible thanks to everyone who attended and a generous grant from the Columbus Foundation’s Green Funds.

It was a beautiful way to contribute to Earth Day activities and experience being part of God’s creation!  And, the fun is not over yet - 50 more plants will be added to the wetland area shortly as well.

  1. Dear Readers,
    I happened to be at Shepherd’s Corner the day volunteers were planting in the wetland area. There is truth to the words that “many hands make light work.” We were scheduled to work from 9-12 am., but were able to leave by 11 because there were so many volunteers. Some of the staff at Shepherd”s Corner also provided tasty baked goods afterwards. The weather was cooperative, the organization was terrific, and the sense of accomplishment was great!
