Fall Conservation Series: Dardenne Greenway Invasive Species Removal
Saturday, December 9, 2023 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Help Great Rivers Greenway hack some honeysuckle and callery pear at Bluebird Meadow Park! Volunteers will work along the Dardenne Greenway near Bluebird Meadow.
Volunteers will help remove invasive bush honeysuckle and callery pear by cutting the plant with handsaws or loppers, dragging, and piling debris to be chipped. This volunteer day will help ongoing prairie restoration efforts by removing these invasive species to make room for native prairie species.
No experience is necessary for this activity, but it does involve physical labor and walking in the woods over varying terrain. Long pants and closed toed shoes are required for participation. Make sure to dress for the weather in clothes you do not mind getting dirty. Work gloves, tools, and other equipment will be provided.
Restroom will be available on site. Great Rivers Greenway will provide packaged snacks and water. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own water bottle to help us reduce plastic waste.
Minimum age for participation is 12.
