Activities include propagating and transplanting native plants, removing invasive species and watering newly planted natives with public volunteers, IRC-certified Volunteers and IRC staff. Community Stewardship activities are attended by community members of all ages (age limit varies by program), local volunteer groups, corporate groups and groups of middle school and high school students.
