Volunteer Work Session April 14, 2018

Calling all volunteers to Isaacson Preserve on Saturday, April 14th, from 10am to noon.  We need extra hands to clip Asiatic bittersweet vines that are beginning to overtake young forest in the uplands around Isaacson’s rare wetland habitats, which are known as fens.  We should be in full swing of amphibian breeding and songbird migration by then, with spring ephemeral wildflowers in bloom too.  This trail-less preserve is not generally open to the public and has only one dedicated parking space.  Volunteers should park at nearby Halle Ravine and walk north along Donbrook Road onto Dogwood Hills Road (link to map).  PRLC staff will meet you at the preserve entrance near 15 Dogwood Hills Lane and will have gloves and tools to share.  Please bring long-handled loppers or a handsaw if you have them.  To register for notice of weather-related cancellation and be added to our volunteer email list, please contact Krista at 914-205-3533 or
