Willow Stake Harvest with Open Space Council
March 5th 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join the Open Space Council for a volunteer workday to harvest willow stakes from George Winter Park in the Meramec Greenway. These stakes will then be installed on the riverbank at Lower Meramec Park the following Saturday. Willow staking is an innovative technique that helps stabilize eroding riverbank by providing a natural plant root system.
This is an excellent hands-on learning opportunity for conservation professionals, land owners, and members of the public interested in the process of willow staking.
We highly recommend volunteers come dressed to get wet and muddy. Volunteers should dress for the weather and wear close-toed waterproof boots.
Due to the terrain at the clean up site, we ask that all volunteers are at least 18 years old. Work gloves and tools will be provided. In case of severe inclement weather, this event will be moved to Monday, March 11th, 2019.
