seed balls

From Eagle Scout Matthew Dorn:

On the October 25 It’s My Park Day, it was my great pleasure to lead the community in planting wildflowers in two large areas along the Northaven Trail.  Altogether, more than thirty volunteers distributed 36,000 seed balls over 72,000 square feet.  A seed ball is a mixture of compost, clay, and wildflower seed.  With the help of my fellow scouts, I made these seed balls the week before the event.

This project would not have happened without the invaluable leadership of Dr. Lisa Umholtz and the Friends of the Northaven Trail Board.  In addition, I appreciate the Parks and Recreation Department of Dallas, which assured that the planting areas will not be mowed.  So, be sure to look for beautiful wildflowers on the trail next spring when you bike, walk, or run!
