Volunteer Workday: B.Y.O.Boat & Maintain Sycamore Island

July 13 @ 10:00 AM - July 14 @ 10:00 AM

Group in boat landing on Sycamore Island conservation area.

Help ALT keep Sycamore Island’s trails tidy and free of invasive plants


Join ALT for a weekend of working on island time! Volunteers will use rakes and loppers to clear vegetation and debris from the trail, tend to young trees, and remove invasive plants. This is a one- or two-day volunteer event with the option to camp overnight! Bring a hammock and a book and enjoy some downtime between trail-tending tasks. Tools, gloves, and trail maintenance expertise will be provided. Volunteers will need to provide their own food and camp gear if they choose to stay overnight, and their own transportation to and from the island.

Registrants will receive further details prior to the date of the event. Questions can be sent to dani@alleghenylandtrust.org
