We are very excited about the upcoming 2017 Keep Poquoson Beautiful event which will be held on April 29th, 2017. Not only do we get to “beautify” the City, we get to work with all of our wonderful volunteers. We have several new events and one that is very familiar, but as always we need your help!
Planting around Oxford Run Ponds
Installing a plant barrier around the ponds.
Planting Seasonal Plants
at City Hall Traffic Circle, the 3 corners of Wythe Creek Road and Victor/Little Florida Road and the micro park at Fire Station#2
Municipal Pool Spruce up
This building is in need of paint, there are gardening adn construction projects also. As always we will provide materials, but we need your labor to get the job done.
Plant Swap (May 13th)
Not sure what a plant swap is or how it works? Bring in your annuals, perennials, small shrubs or trees and/or vegetable plants potted and labeled. Staff will assign a value to the plant(s) and give you vouchers for that amount. When we begin the swap, you may use your vouchers to purchase new plants for your yard. Plant drop off is between 9 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. and purchasing starts promptly at 11 a.m. It is our hope that this will become an annual event.
Litter Pickup at Messick Point & Amory’s Wharf
This cleanup activity is always a fun time to share with friends/family and a terrific way to teach our youth how littering can be detrimental aesthetically and environmentally.
