Fall Conservation Series: Fee Fee Greenway Invasive Species Removal
Saturday, November 18, 2023 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Help Great Rivers Greenway hack some honeysuckle and autumn olive along Fee Fee Greenway! Volunteers will work near the segment closest to Aquaport.
Volunteers will help remove invasive bush honeysuckle and autumn olive by cutting the plant with handsaws or loppers, dragging, and piling debris to be chipped. This volunteer day will help future conservation projects by opening the woodland for future native tree plantings and prairie restoration projects.
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.
