Registration is required so we can communicate in case of any necessary changes

A follow-up to our Lunch and Learn online event; spend the morning hiking the verdant trails of Dead Man’s Hollow to target invasive plant species. Participants will use their plant ID knowledge to identify some of the most invasive plants in Dead Man’s Hollow and use loppers, shovels, hoes, and puller bars to safely and effectively remove these plants.
