Stewardship Work Day at The Highlands
This Highlands Stewardship Work Day will focus on removal of invasive species, specifically garlic mustard. Education is always a major focus of the day as volunteers learn to identify and manage invasive plants like garlic mustard that may be growing in their own backyards, their schools or city parks and how those plants and their volunteer efforts directly impact their surrounding environment.
Age Requirements: This is a public volunteer opportunity for people 14 . Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
What to Wear? Long pants and closed toe shoes are mandatory. Layers and hats are always encouraged. Dress for the weather.
