Workday at Sharon Hills Preserve

September 9 @ 10:00 am

On September 9 from 10am-12pm, Legacy Land Conservancy’s stewardship team will be hosting a workday at Sharon Hills Preserve. Join us and help remove the invasive species autumn olive.

Volunteers (using loppers and hand-saws) will cut back shrubs to two-inch stumps and help haul cut plant material. Stumps will be treated with herbicide by Legacy staff to ensure these hardy invasive plants don’t re-sprout in the spring.

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.
