Al Foster Trail Honeysuckle Sweep

Note: This event is at capacity! Check out our next volunteer event, Native Tree Planting with Forest ReLeaf! Thank you for your interest in volunteering!

Volunteers will remove invasive bush honeysuckle along the Western Greenway in the city of Wildwood, by cutting the plant with handsaws or loppers, dragging, and piling debris to be chipped.  No experience is necessary for this activity, but it does involve physical labor and walking in the woods over varying terrain. 

No experience necessary: Great Rivers Greenway staff will teach volunteers how to identify, remove, and treat bush honeysuckle. 

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 or hand 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.
