Natural Area Volunteers (April 2016 – October 2016)

Invasive Plants grow and spread rapidly, crowding out native trees, wildflowers, and plants we want to establish in collections areas. Volunteers in good physical condition, able to navigate uneven terrain, and work in all weather conditions are welcome to join one of our work groups below. Volunteers must be over 16 years old and willing to make a weekly commitment from April- October.
