About

Every Wednesday from 9 am - Noon.

Paddock Woods is mostly a high-quality oak woodland. We need your help to make all of it high-quality!

We'll wander off-trail to help this preserve by removing invading plants. We are also collecting seed from native flowers, grasses, and sedges. You'll get up close and personal with the hills and ravines, seeing what others miss. Plus it's a good workout.
