For the Birds: Fall Invasive Removal & Tree Planting

November 3 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Come lend a hand to the land and the birds!

In 2016, Allegheny Land Trust, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, and Western Pennsylvania Conservancy teamed up to improve bird habitat in Dead Man’s Hollow Conservation Area, a 450-acre conservation area that provides significant habitat for forest interior-dwelling bird species.

Continuing this plan to provide even better habitat for our winged friends. Join fellow volunteers in removing invasive plant species such as multiflora rose, bush honeysuckle, and bittersweet vines, and end the day with a tree planting.

Wear appropriate footwear and outerwear. We will work rain or shine, but will reschedule in case of a thunderstorm. Activities will require climbing over various surfaces, including wet and muddy areas, and working near thorns and brush. Attendees are asked to work at their own ability.

Water, snacks, and tools provided. Please bring your own reusable water bottle if possible.
