Promoting planting to enhance the
natural beauty and landscape of our community is an important part of the Pelham Preservation & Garden Society's
mission. Residents are encouraged to plant native species that support birds and wildlife and represent sustainable
contributions to Pelham's unique sense of place. Member volunteers devote time each year to a project aimed at planting
and maintaining public parks and greenspace in Pelham.
