Huron Native Pollinator Garden on the Huron-Manistee National Forest Title text here 2010 Accomplishments We created interpretive signs and species labels for native plants growing around the Mio Ranger District administrative site. We also purchased paver stone and woodchips for borders, to improve the aesthetic appearance of the site. After initiation in 2008, the garden continued to develop in 2009. In 2010 some plants were replanted after sidewalk repair. Since this time we have been in maintenance mode. Occasional weeding was done. No watering was required. Future plantings or trimming may be required as some plants have grown large.
