Volunteer! Remove Multiflora Rose at Lydick Bog

February 5 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Free
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS EVENT IS 1PM – 4PM EASTERN TIME
Multiflora rose is an exotic invasive that can form dense thickets and shade out our native wildflowers, and may be detrimental to the nesting of native birds.
Join Stewardship Assistant, Doug Botka, to learn how to identify and remove multiflora rose from the former farm fields at Lydick Bog.
Meet in the parking lot at 1pm EASTERN or join in the fields if you arrive later. Feel free to stay for as little or as long as you’re able.
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.
So that we can best plan for the event, please RSVP by calling the office at 219-242-8558 or emailing Volunteer Coordinator, Christine Maloney, at cmaloney@heinzetrust.org. For information about last minute cancellations, please check Facebook.
