Join staff in removing invasive non-native plant species from Horseshoe Farm Nature Preserve. Invasive species out-compete the native plants that our animals rely on for food. By removing these problem plants we are giving our native species a chance to grow.

Tools used: We will be using handsaws (18+ years ), and loppers to cut down Privet. We will also be dragging and stacking the removed plants.

Work Environment: We will be working outside on uneven ground as we cut and remove the Privet in the wooded areas of the park. There is a restroom on site.

Please bring: a water bottle, wear sturdy close-toed shoes and clothing you can get dirty. We will supply the tools and work-gloves.

Pre-registration is required. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to volunteer. Everyone who volunteers must sign a release form. If anyone is under the age of 18, then a parent or guardian must sign their form as well.
