Restoration Workdays

restoration-work-day01

Work with a Site Steward to conduct approved projects that improve the health of our prairies, wetlands and forests. Typical activities include: invasive plant removal, native plant seed collection and processing and tree and shrub planting. Workdays are a great opportunity to spend time outdoors while giving back to the environment.
