About

Join the Stewardship Team to do forest restoration in Jones Woods Park! We will be pulling invasive plants like Japanese knotweed and garlic mustard in the upland forests at Jones Woods. These exotic species suppress native plant growth and diminish forest health - Come protect our city’s valuable natural resources! Please come dressed in long pants, clothes that can get dirty, and durable boots or sneakers, and bring your own water bottle. All volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
