Callery Pear & Bush Honeysuckle Removal at Bluebird Meadow at Dardenne Greenway

May 18th 10:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

Volunteers will be helping Great Rivers Greenway remove callery pear and bush honeysuckle to improve habitat along Dardenne Greenway. Callery pear and bush honeysuckle are invasive plants that chocke out native plants and harm our local ecosystems. Volunteers will help remove callery pear and bush honeysuckle by cutting the plant with handsaws or loppers, dragging, and piling to be chipped. No experience is necessary for this activity but it does involve physical labor and walking in the woods over varying terrain.

Great Rivers Greenway will provide all tools, safety equipment, and work gloves. We will provide packaged snacks for volunteers. Drinking water will be available however volunteers are encouraged to bring their own water bottle to help us reduce project waste. Note that the minimum age to volunteer is 12 years old.

Thanks to partners at City of Dardenne Prairie and Americorps St. Louis!
