About

Enjoy the great outdoors with Green Iowa this March! Come help us remove invasive species and restore Easter Lake Park's natural biodiversity.

We will be meeting at shelter 3 ( see linked map below) for a brief orientation and training. All tools and safety equipment will be provided by Green Iowa and the parks department. We will be bringing a cooler, so feel free to bring any drinks or snacks for the day. Water will be provided.

Easter Lake Park is overrun with invasive species, harming the natural environment. Volunteers can help by being hands-on in the invasive species removal process which is vital to the survival of native oak trees. By assisting in the removal of invasive species, volunteers will learn proper identification techniques, reclaim land for community enjoyment, and restore Easter Lake Park for healthy wildlife habitat.

Children are welcome when accompanied by an adult.

Due to poison ivy, volunteers must wear long pants and closed-toed shoes. Thank you!
