Volunteers will work with loppers and handsaws to cut honeysuckle, autumn olive and callery pear and possibly burn the cuttings. Volunteers must wear long pants and closed-toe shoes (which shouldn't be a problem this time of year) and long sleeves are recommended. Any age is welcome but children will need to be closely supervised. No experience necessary.  No registration needed.  This event will be cancelled if there is bad weather.
