Volunteer! Meadowbrook Mondays – Invasive Species Removal

December 20, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us on the first and third Monday of every month as we work on a variety of projects at Meadowbrook Nature Preserve to improve and beautify the preserve.
For the next three workdays, we will be focusing on removing invasive species, which crowd out our native plants and reduce biodiversity. Come out to learn how to identify the Terrible Trio: autumn olive, black locust, and oriental bittersweet.
Dec 20 – autumn olive
Jan 3 – black locust
Jan 17 – oriental bittersweet
Be prepared to work outside and dress appropriately for the weather. We will provide all the necessary equipment and gear, as well as granola bars and water, although we encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle. Feel free to stay as little or as long as you’d like.
So that we can best plan for the event, please RSVP by calling the office at 219-242-8558 or emailing Christine at cmaloney@heinzetrust.org. For information about last minute cancellations, please check back here.
