WINONA LAKE – With the sun shining and not a rain cloud in the sky Tuesday, volunteers and Washington STEM Academy students got their hands dirty to plant thousands of native plants at Winona Lake Limitless Park.

The Watershed Foundation and the Winona Lake Parks Department were reconstructing 500 feet of Winona Lake Limitless Park’s shoreline and putting in a new rain garden between the park and Cherry Creek. 

Adult volunteers worked from 9 a.m. to noon and 3 to 7 p.m. Tuesday and today. Students took part from about noon to 3 p.m. While Washington students took part Tuesday, Jefferson Elementary students were expected to plant native species today.

Lyn Crighton, TWF executive director, said 15 volunteers put in 253 shrubs Tuesday morning. The variety of bushes included spice bush, red osier dogwood and smooth hydrangea.
