Help remove invasive honeysuckle and autumn olive with CCFPD Natural Resources staff. Wear closed-toe shoes, long sleeves and long pants.  Keep in mind that clothes may get damaged from woody plants or sparks from possible burn pile. We will supply any tools needed. Please use address and follow any arrow signs on your way in.  Check social media or email [email protected] the morning of event for weather cancellations.

All ages welcome, but youth must be supervised by an adult.

Invasive plant removal is one of the most ecologically impactful volunteer opportunities we offer, and remarkably satisfying too! Contact Emily at [email protected] or Sue at [email protected] if you have questions.
