About

September marks a time when many volunteers join together to help improve and enhance public lands. Hermann Park Conservancy will be working with volunteers to restore a local "treasured landscape", a forested ecosystem at Bayou Parkland on Saturday, September 29, 2018. Activities: invasive species removal. Invasive species (plants) will be marked; participants will receive identification instructions. Using hand saws or loppers, volunteers will cut invasive shrubs 3 feet above ground, and scar the trunk. Unwanted debris/plant matter will be piled in specific locations to be hauled off. Bayou Parkland, a unique environment and natural area offers a peaceful respite from the more heavily trafficked areas of the main park. The area provides for migration and natural habitat regeneration for wildlife. Materials to be used: gloves, leaf rakes, shovels, small hand saws, and loppers. Limited equipment provided; participants encouraged to bring their own. Ice water provided, participants should bring their own individual water bottles and snacks. What to wear: appropriate outdoor clothing, long pants, high socks, sleeved shirts, closed toe shoes or work/hiking boots. Sunscreen and insect repellent is recommended. Parking: Limited parking Lot P on Almeda Drive, participants are encouraged to use metro and carpool. RSVP by Sept. 26 th. Please request a volunteer registration form and return it to Diane Kerr, Director of Volunteer Programs at dkerr@hermannpark.org
