A day for volunteers to help plant cattails in Lake Mitchell has been scheduled for May 14 at Lake Mitchell.

Volunteers will gather at the Sportsman Boat Ramp and work from 9 a.m. to noon, planting cattails in shallow water/sandy areas to help shore stability, fish habitat, water clarity and natural aesthetic beauty at the lake.

Volunteers are asked to bring mud boots or waders and tools to help plant bulbs such as a spade, shovel or hand tool. Please wear work clothing appropriate for the weather. Water and snacks should be brought, as well.

To sign up, contact Steve Roth at Mitchell Park and Recreation Department at 999-9663. Civic organizations and other groups are welcome to help and should respond with total number of volunteers attending.
