Stewardship Saturdays

This year-round, ongoing effort helps to improve and sustain the ecological health of the habitats in the Environmental Study Area. That includes addressing the many threats posed by invasive plants and re-establishing native plant life.

Stewardship Saturdays will take place from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on the third Saturday of the month.2024 Stewardship Saturday Dates 1/20,2/17,3/16,4/20,5/18,6/15

Pick one or more days to come out and help. Each month will bring opportunities for removal of various invasive plants according to current best management practices, etc. Children must be at least 10 years of age to participate.

All equipment for removing invasive plants will be provided by the Center. But if you can bring a sturdy pair of long-handled branch loppers, please do.  Also, please bring your own drinking water and work gloves for use in the field.

This activity involves moderate physical activity in off trail natural habitat areas. Wear suitable work clothes that can be scraped and poked by twigs and/or the occasional thorny plant, or have contact with sticky bur seeds. A good pair of sturdy work shoes/boots is also a must. No sandals, please.
