Volunteer Workday – Sweeney Woods

September 11 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Help fight back against woody brush invading the biodiversity of Chinquapin Bluffs!  We will focus on shrub-sized black locust trees in the prairie.  Involves some physical activity navigating unlevel ground, using loppers/handsaws, and handheld herbicide sprayers.  Please bring water, work gloves, sturdy shoes and long pants.

Sign up to volunteer!
