Invasive Removal at Joslin
** IN ORDER TO REGISTER AS A VOLUNTEER FOR THIS EVENT YOU MUST COPY AND PASTE THE LINK BELOW INTO YOUR BROWSER**
Join Parks staff at the beautiful Joslin Garden property to manage invasive plant species.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Volunteers and staff must follow the COVID-19 policies below so that projects are safe for everyone.
