Before discarding or mulching native plants when sprucing up the yard this season, consider donating them to Lackawanna Heritage Valley’s “Green Roof” project at Nay Aug Avenue Natural Play Area in Scranton.
LHV staff and volunteers will build a green, or living, roof on the Fidelity Fishing Shack at the trailhead park in Green Ridge. To help cover the roof in vegetation, LHV is accepting native plant donations from members of the greater Scranton community. Desired varieties include: Lilies, Hostas, Black-eyed Susans, Daisies and Sedum (commonly known as stonecrop)
Through June 14, plants may be dropped off at LHV Headquarters, 213 South 7th Avenue, in West Scranton, Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
All donations are greatly appreciated as the project will create opportunities for educational science and nature programming for children and enhance the beauty of the play area.
