The Bonsal Wildlife Preserve Conservancy is having a blowout restoration event at the Preserve next Saturday, May 27, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The mission? The event is all about tackling invasive species and replacing them with wildlife-friendly plantings, courtesy of a generous donation from the Montclair Rotary Club.

Bonsal Wildlife Preserve Conservancy will be hosting over 30 volunteers from the Friends of Bonsal and corporate partner, the Phillip Jeffries Company. Meet at Riverview Drive entrance of the Preserve in Montclair.
