Arboretum Volunteer Work Event

Brush removal to revitalize Postage Stamp Prairie

Saturday, October 17th, 2015
9:00 am – 12:00 pm / Upper Arb - Bridge over Spring Creek
Poster for October 2015 Volunteer Event

Help remove buckthorn and other invading shrubs at the edge of Postage Stamp Prairie in the Upper Arboretum.  Postage Stamp is a true prairie remnant, never subject to agricultural crop use, and one of the most important areas in the whole Arboretum, even though it is tiny, only about 1/4 acre! Learn about the history of this special spot and help maintain it for the future. We recommend long pants, a long sleeved shirt, and closed toe shoes and socks. Meet at the bridge over Spring Creek just downhill from the Arboretum entrance at Second and Oak Streets.
