Volunteers needed to plant daffodils in Central Point
Volunteers are needed to plant 1,000 daffodil bulbs in Central Point this fall so the bright, colorful flowers will bloom in the spring.
Daffodils flower year after year and are some of the first plants to bloom in the spring.
The Central Point Parks and Recreation Department is holding three bulb planting events at sites scattered around town:
- 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9, at the corner of Highway 99 and Cascade Drive, just north of the Skyrman Arboretum. Parking is available at the arboretum and on Cascade Drive.
- 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, at Don Jones Park off Hamrick Road.
- 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23, at the Central Point Library, 116 S. Third St., and Central Point City Hall, 140 S. Third St.
Volunteers are asked to bring gardening gloves and a trowel or shovel. A limited number of tools will be available. All ages are welcome, but children must be supervised. Volunteers can spend as much time as they want planting bulbs for the Plant a Thousand Daffodils beautification project.
