Work with other Nature Conservancy volunteers cutting and making brush piles of the invasive shrub honeysuckle that is taking over the upland forest next to the prairie. Tools and training will be provided. As the season progresses you will see a myriad of wildflowers, songbirds, and butterflies, with naturalists present to help with identification. This part of the preserve is not open to the public, so this is your only chance to see it. Snacks and cold drinks will be served at the end of the workday. For even more fun bring your friends!
Bring your phone so you can Instagram the neat things you see.
P.S. Stick around for Lev’s Bakery chocolate chip cookies and cold Coke at the end of the day.
P.P.S. There will be an optional walk to see cricket frogs after the refreshments.
The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.
