Belle Isle Volunteer Opportunity


Please join other Peace Corps volunteer, friends, family to help garden at the Rotary Garden June 16th, from 9:00am to 12:00pm(Saturday). Gloves and tools will be supplied. We will be working with Mebby Pearson who use to head the invasive species volunteering at Belle Isle. Please see the map above. The garden is next to the former police station. Mebby said in response to directions, “Right now I cannot give directions because of the Grand Prix stands, etc. being removed. The traffic patterns have been altered. The former police station is on the north side of the island on Inselruhe, the same street as the White House. Feel free to give out my number in case anyone gets lost. Normally you would go down Central to the big statue in the road and turn left. We are the only building on the short block.” Her phone number is 248-376-8220.

Mebby said, this is a slow pace garden gathering about native plants. I could use your help.

If it is rainy on Saturday morning, I will call Mebby to make sure on or off. Please feel free to call me on my home phone at 313-341-9355 or cell will be on that day at 313-674-9182. It would be helpful if you can RSVP to me just so we know who might be coming. Cheryl Bukoff

Looking forward to seeing you.
