Explore the floodplain forest next to Champlain Creek while you work with other Nature Conservancy volunteers pulling the invasive (but edible) plant Garlic Mustard next to Champlain Creek. As you work you can see spring wildflowers, migrating songbirds, and butterflies, with bird and flower experts present to help with identification. Ives Road Fen is a large preserve and we are working in a far corner of it so this gives you a chance to see a part that you would never find by yourself. Chocolate chip cookies and cold Mountain Dew will be served at the end of the day. For even more fun bring your friends! We provide all the equipment and training you need.

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 lunch and water and wear boots We will provide tools and gloves but bring your own if you have some you like.
