Woody Invasives Workday at Johnson Preserve

October 1 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

On October 1st from 10am-12pm, Legacy Land Conservancy’s stewardship team will be hosting a work day at the Lloyd and Mabel Johnson Preserve. Join us and help remove the woody invasive species common buckthorn, honeysuckle, and autumn olive.

Volunteers (using loppers and hand-saws) will cut back shrubs to two-inch stumps and help haul cut plant material.

Please dress for the weather and in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Pants and closed toe shoes are a must, regardless of the temperature, to protect from poison ivy and getting scratched up while working outside. Legacy will provide tools and work gloves, but you are welcome to bring your own if you have a pair you like. Don’t forget sunscreen and we suggest you bring bug spray to reduce the risk of exposure to ticks.

Please pre-register by completing the waiver – click here to complete the waiver
