Volunteers Needed for Tree Planting This Weekend

*******THE WHIPS HAVE ARRIVED…COME GET YOURS TO PLANT!

NRPA staff is here from 10:00am-3:00pm to hand out trees, pass out instructions and answer your questions.******

The National Recreation and Parks Association is donating 200 whips (white oaks and Green sapling of apple treesycamores) to the HOA to be planted as part of our earth day efforts.  The locations for planting are in the no-mow areas behind Frame Square, Iredell Square, and Summerbrooke Pool, up the hill, backing up to the Greenway. The no-mow areas were established to increase habitats for insects and wildlife, reduce air and noise pollution from mowers, provide a buffer from the highway, restore natural landscapes for exploring, promote sustainable landscaping, and reduce heat island effects.

Volunteer to plant at your leisure this weekend. Areas will be marked where planting should take place. Click on PLANTING MAP for location details. The whips are very small and will be easy to transport and plant. All you need is a small shovel or spade.  It’s as easy as 1-2-3…dig the hole, plant the whip, and fill the hole with dirt and compact.  Watering is helpful, but not necessary.  Planting can be done on your own during the time frame allotted.

We are asking students and families to participate in this endeavor. Please sign up here: www.signupgenius.com/go/20f054bafa92ea4ff2-volunteers

These whips will be available beginning Friday, April 27th for planting over the weekend. Whips can be picked up at the Nature Center on Friday or Saturday morning on the back patio, adjacent to the tennis courts.  NRPA will have staff at the Nature Center on Friday, from 10:00am-3:00pm to hand out trees, pass out instructions and answer your questions.

 

Any questions, please contact Sarah@broadlandshoa.com

Bullfrog Pond County Survey

December 28, 2017

The County of Loudoun is responsible for the four inlet pipes that take stormwater into the pond.  Representatives of the county’s Department of General Services, Public Works Division oversee the stormwater management program.  Their engineers have advised us that they will be surveying the pond inlets in the coming weeks to delineate the tree preserve and protected wetlands areas.  Land surveyors will mark these areas with stakes and/or tape.  Please DO NOT REMOVE or relocate these survey markers.  The survey work will not encroach onto any private property and will not hinder activities.  We expect surveying to be performed in January.  Additional information regarding work to be performed will be distributed in the coming months as further details are received.

If you have questions regarding this information, please contact Karl E. Evans, Senior Stormwater Engineer at 703-771-5358 or Karl.Evans@loudoun.gov.

Upcoming Events this Weekend in Broadlands

Family Camp Out at the Nature Center Tonight, click to sign up: June 30
Every month now through October, we will have two Friday camp outs per month. This will allow you to come and pitch a tent, enjoy S’mores and a fire pit, come inside and pet the animals and have bedtime stories. You can come to the Nature Center lawn and pitch your tent at 4:00pm, but we don’t light the fire until around 7:00pm. Kids have night games in the lawn and, when the weather is hot, we get out all of the water toys. If you want to come and enjoy the evening but don’t have the camping equipment we would love to have you. Costs are only $10.00 per family. These costs remain the same if you camp out or not as they cover the wood and marshmallows.
