Weed Wrangle at Oppenheim Woods

ORGANIZATION: The Nature Conservancy

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 1 person is interested

Help land steward Nathan Herbert of The Nature Conservancy and Kosciusko Water & Woodland Invasives Partnership with hand-pulling invasive shrubs from Oppenheim Woods in Kosciusko County! Invasive species pose a significant threat to this ecosystem and many other natural areas in Indiana. Out-competing native species, invasives reduce biodiversity and cause habitat loss for Indiana’s native insects, birds, and other animals. Come be a part of the solution at this family-friendly Weed Wrangle.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome as this is a great service activity for Scouts and kids wanting to give back to their local natural areas! No experience needed, just be comfortable walking over uneven terrain and doing some moderate bending and pulling. Come prepared with close-toed shoes and some drinking water.

All supplies and instructions are provided, as is bottled water and granola bars.

Sign up early as spots are limited by RSVPing here: Spring Weed Wrangle at Oppenheim Woods.

Please come prepared with drinking water, closed-toed working shoes, and weather-appropriate layers. If you have questions, please contact Esme Barniskis at

Note: this event is at 10am Eastern.
