Learn to Identify Invasive Plants at our June 2 Volunteer Work Session
Our June 2 volunteer work session will be held at the Armstrong Preserve on June 2 at 10am-noon (link to map). Participants will receive tips on how to identify invasive plants that negatively affect forest and watershed health. Learn to protect native ecology in your own backyard by removing or controlling the spread of these undesirable plants, including Asiatic bittersweet vines, Japanese barberry, wineberry, and burningbush. Join our Garlic Mustard Challenge and pull this tasty but environmentally noxious weed by the pound to make your own pesto! We will meet at the kiosk and work nearby. Please wear long pants and sleeves to protect your skin from ticks and thorns, and bring thick leather gloves and a shovel if you have them. We will have some gloves and tools to share.
