Event Description

Work parties are a great way to practice ecological restoration, learn about the Arboretum plant communities, and make friends. Activities include cutting brush from remnant and restored areas, removing invasive plants, and burn unit preparation. Individuals can drop-in; groups need to contact Please meet the team leaders at 9 a.m. at the select location. Wear long pants, sturdy shoes or boots (this is a must!), and dress for the weather (we do not recommend wearing fleece-- burrs stick to it). Bring your own water bottle and favorite insect repellent (and EpiPen if allergic to bee stings). We provide the tools, training, snacks, and gloves. We prefer if volunteers are vaccinated.
