Northern Hills Master Gardeners tidy up National Fish Hatchery in Spearfish

By  | 

In honor of Earth Day, the Northern Hills Master Gardeners decided to spruce up one of Spearfish's tourist attractions.

The Master Gardeners and members of the Spearfish community teamed up to clean the gardens of the D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery.

Some say they're volunteering because they want to make the town look more beautiful.

Others say they just like to play in the dirt.

Master Gardener of the Catherine Thybo Chapter Karen McKelvie says, "Today is Earth Day and we're trying to make Spearfish a better sparkling place for having weddings up here at the Ruby House and welcome visitors to Spearfish. Our chapter is working on conservation and this is just a little bit of conservation, making it a more beautiful place."

The Hatchery will officially kick off their summer season with Booth Day on May 13th.

The Northern Hills Master Gardeners are always looking for more volunteers.
