The Friends of Spy Pond Park have scheduled work days for 2014 on Saturdays in spring and fall from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (rain dates the following Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m.). The season's last work day is Saturday, Oct. 18.

The group aims to reestablish native plants at the water's edge, which prevent erosion, restore the natural balance and beautify the park. You can help by volunteering.

This year, volunteers of all ages will maintain fern and wildflower beds, eliminate invasive plants, weed out tree saplings and help prevent erosion along the bike path.

Teens earn community-service points, and kids work alongside parents.

Even if you have only a few minutes, please join us. You will be surprised how much noxious false indigo you can chop down in a half-hour.

Meet by the playground at Pond Lane. Bring gloves and garden tools or use ours.

All volunteers must sign the Workday waiver form each season (
