The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We use sponge applicators to apply herbicide to the stumps to prevent regrowth. Other jobs you can choose from are cutting and dragging.
Tap into your inner barbarian for 3 hours of battle at Ives Road Fen Preserve! Use lethal tools to destroy invasive species in the far reaches of the swamp. We will issue blade weapons, chemical weapons and deflector shields. You will get muddy, cut to pieces by thorns and mobbed by biting insects. No awards or Viking helmets; just relish in the aftermath of conquered habitat and a pile of dead enemy.
Meet 0.2 miles south of the intersection of Ives Road and North Raisin Center Highway, where a Nature Conservancy sign will be posted until 9:00. Bring enough water for a desert crossing and wear your regular issue combat boots for protection from punji stakes and snakes. Regain your strength at the end of the day with high fat chocolate chip cookies and caffeinated HFCS drinks. Feed the local wildlife by giving your blood to the leeches in our quarry swimming hole before you go home.
