Action 2000
INDIAN ROCKS BEACH – The Action 2000 service Saturday is April 25, 9 to 11 a.m., at the 10th Avenue park.

Volunteers may park in the 10th Avenue Indian Rocks Beach Nature Preserve parking lot. Members of the organization will be mulching and planting spring flowers.

To get ready for the June 20 planting at the county park between 17th and 18th avenues, A2K will have three Wednesday sessions from 9 to 11 a.m. to prepare the site.

For volunteers who have a hard time making Saturday sessions, this could be a good alternative. Club members will be weeding and trimming in the county park, where they will be planting the native butterfly garden.

The park is overgrown and requires some preparation work before the June 20 planting. The prep dates are April 29, May 13 and June 3, 9 to 11 a.m.
