Saturday, December 2, 2023 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join the Community Stewardship Alliance to stake willows along the Meramec riverbank at Lower Meramec Park to help with riverbank stabilization. No previous conservation experience is needed and volunteers are encouraged to come and learn.

Why willow staking?

Volunteers will stake willows as part of an ongoing project to help stabilize the riverbank. The willow trees will create a natural root system that will help to keep the soil from eroding further. This natural plant solution to erosion can help restore habitat for wildlife and keep the erosion from reaching the Meramec Greenway Trail so park users can continue to use and enjoy the trail.

This is part of an ongoing conservation effort at Lower Meramec Park, so check for future opportunities! Volunteers should register at
