Volunteer Workday: Wingfield Invasive Removal

July 27 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Help ALT combat invasive plant species at Wingfield Pines


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

Wingfield Pines is a haven for birds and other wonderful wetland organisms, as well as a great place to spend a Saturday morning! Join ALT’s John Hamm Conservation Intern Luke Haury, to identify the region’s most aggressive invasive plants and safely remove them from the area. This work is crucial to maintaining a healthy ecosystem! Volunteers will use loppers, rakes, pruners, saws, and puller bars to effectively eliminate invasive plants.
