Volunteer: Spring Greenway Cutback

Saturday, February 24, 2024 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Volunteers are needed for our Spring Greenway Cutback Event on Saturday February 24 from 9am to 11am!

We will be working at three different greenway sites to cut back native perennials and grasses in preparation for new growth in the spring. Our work in February will be rewarded later this year as we watch the native plants and grasses flourish when the weather warms up!

No experience necessary: Great Rivers Greenway staff will teach volunteers how to cut back the perennials and grasses.

What to wear: Please dress for the weather and bundle up. Long sleeve shirts, pants and closed toe shoes are required. Eye protection and gloves will be provided.

What to bring: All tools will be provided, but please feel free to bring your own loppers, garden shears and pruners if you have them. Please bring a water bottle to help us reduce plastic waste. Light snacks and water will be provided.  

Note: This event is limited to ages 13 and older.
