Restoration Work Days

Help restore your neighborhood natural areas! Join us any of these mornings to help clear invasive plants, clean-up trash, plant native plants and seeds, maintain trails and more. This is a great opportunity for families and service groups to give back to their community. Geared for ages 5+. Please bring work gloves if you have them.
