BACT joined thousands of others worldwide to celebrate Earth Day on Friday April 22.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who joined us at Pederson Preserve located across from Barrington High School on Earth Day.
Over 30 volunteers met to plant 2000 echinacea seedlings and gather two garbage bins of debris from the road side. The seedlings, grown by BHS horticulture classes in the school greenhouse this winter, were gently planted in pre-drilled holes and tenderly covered with compost and water. These new seedlings will give way to a spectacular display of native flowers adding to the beauty of this preserve which has been undergoing restoration efforts since its purchase in 2011.
