Come join us!  No experience necessary.  Restoration Workdays occur in dozens of sites around the county, some on weekdays & some on weekends.  These are no-commitment - come to as many workdays as you can.  Children 10 years & up are welcome with an adult (and waiver signed by legal guardian).  Please be prompt; the group will often head off-trail and you may have a difficult time finding them.  Dress for the weather.  Closed-toe shoes are required & long pants are recommended all year-round.  Bring work gloves. 

SPRING: Brush clearing, garlic mustard control, planting
SUMMER: Garlic mustard control, wildlife monitoring, weed management, planting, seed collecting
FALL: Brush clearing, seed collection, tree & shrub planting
WINTER: Brush clearing, sowing seed

New volunteers and groups of four or more, please RSVP to Kelly Burdick, so we have enough supplies for everyone.  View all upcoming workdays »
