Event Description:

Join Parks staff in removing invasive, non-native plant species from Lake Johnson.

Volunteer Duty Description:

Volunteers will cut and drag invasive vines, trees and shrubs. Volunteers will use tools such as handsaws and loppers to cut down invasive plants.

Volunteer Impact:

Invasive species out-compete the native plants that our animals rely on for food and shelter. By removing these problem plants we are giving our native species a chance to grow.

Work Environment:

We will be working in the woods on uneven terrain. There may be contact with snakes and bugs. There will be a restroom on site.

Volunteer Requirements:

Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age. 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.

Volunteers under the age of 16 will not be able to use hand tools to cut away invasive plants, but will be able to help drag them out and pile them up.

Other Instructions:

We will supply all tools needed. Volunteers should dress to work outdoors. Sturdy closed-toe shoes are required and long pants are recommended. Please bring your own filled water bottle.
