Weekly Social Action Update

Social Action updates are posted every week on the Social Action page of our website and on this website calendar.

• SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16 Learn about ReWild Excited about flowers but are you dreading the thought of watering, mowing and chemically fertilizing your lawn this year? Fed up with mower and blower noise? Ever wondered about environmentally friendlier alternatives that would be even more beautiful and biodiverse? ReWild is a new Community Organization of like-minded neighbors in Port Washington that can work with you to realize your vision of an aesthetically pleasing, environmentally beneficial yard which costs less in money and effort. Our goal is to work together to create beautiful, biodiverse, bird, bee and butterfly-friendly biomes that beat the boring old lawn! Join us to make ReWilding fun! 

To learn more, come to our meeting on Saturday, Feb 16th at 10 AM at the Hagedorn Room of the Port Washington Public Library or contact David.jakim@gmail.com <mailto:David.jakim@gmail.com
