The town of Laurel Park is holding a volunteer work day Saturday to finish beautifying Rhododendron Lake Nature Park ahead of a big park dedication on Arbor Day, April 27.

"We're expecting probably 20 people to volunteer," said Mayor Carey O'Cain. They could use more. "Meet at 9 Saturday morning at Town Hall and we'll divvy up responsibilities."

Among the tasks are roadside cleanup, fertilizing and watering trees, pruning, raking, wheelbarrowing and speading mulch. Bring loppers, clippers, shovels, rakes and other garden tools, plus garden gloves, sunblock and water.

The Rhododendron Lake Nature Park celebration from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, April 27, features a history walk, ribbon cutting and an "ask the experts" time with master gardeners, birders, conservationists and others. People are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner and (for the park celebration event only) beer and wine are allowed.
