Arboretum Volunteer Work Event

Celebrate Earth Day! Shrub planting and Invasive Species Removal

Saturday, April 18th, 2015
1:00 – 3:00 pm / Upper Arb - Bridge over Spring Creek
April Volunteer Event Announcement

We will be working to improve the health of the forests of the Arboretum by removing invasive species such as buckthorn, bush honeysuckle, and barberry. Learn why these plants are a problem and how to identify these invaders so you can remove them on your own property! We may also be planting native shrubs, but this depends on when spring arrives and if the native plants are available from the nursery. If you are under 14 please bring a parent with you. All participants will be asked to sign a waiver of liability. If you are under 18 a parent will need to sign the liability form before you can work.
