One of the biggest ongoing efforts in the stewardship of a nature preserve is to keep it free of litter and garbage. We could use your help at Gordon & Faith Greiner Nature Preserve in Hobart to remove trash where it’s settled along the frontage on Liverpool Road. We’ll be teaming up with Citizens for A Sustainable Hobart to restore the strip to a more natural state. The grassroots organization promotes sustainability, conservation, and climate resilience in the City of Hobart.

Greiner is one of the most diverse, in terms of how many habitats actually comprise it. Sometimes called a “transitional landscape,” the preserve showcases prairie, fen, wet woods, and an oak savanna habitat and features an open sand dune. A wide range of wildlife depends on the integrity of this habitat, so it’s all the more important to keep it as pristine as possible.

Be prepared to work outside and dress appropriately for the weather. Conditions on the workday may be very warm or wet. Volunteer workdays are held in all types of weather, although if conditions become hazardous during or leading into the workday, we may be forced to cancel abruptly. Your safety is our first concern! Some of the work area may be wet, muddy, or have some standing water. Sturdy boots are strongly encouraged, and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to bring along rubber or waterproof boots if you have them. Make sure to wear long pants and maybe even long sleeves, as we may encounter ticks, mosquitoes, or poison ivy. We will provide all the necessary equipment, gear, and water. We encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle!
