Asian bush honeysuckle is a highly invasive shrub that does not benefit native plants or wildlife. Removing it makes you a habitat hero! Join us on Saturday, September 26th from 10am-12pm to cut down Asian bush honeysuckle and help restore the beautiful forest in Munsee Woods.
This event limits contact with staff and between volunteers. For your safety, we are limiting participation to 25 volunteers and registration is required. Please bring a face mask and work gloves.
HOW IT WORKS WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING:
When you arrive at Munsee Woods, you will see a table with loppers and a sample of Asian honeysuckle. The staff near the table will direct you to tagged honeysuckle shrubs. Just cut down any plant you see tagged and place the brush in a pile. If you see a volunteer working in one area, simply walk to other areas of tagged trees. Munsee Woods is closed to the public.
WHAT TO BRING:
Bring plenty of water to stay hydrated. Please wear long sleeves, pants and sturdy closed-toed shoes. You must bring your own work gloves and face mask. Face masks are required. There will be a limited number of loppers on site, if you have your own you are encouraged to bring it. There will be hand sanitizer on site. Because of the dense vegetation, this workday is not suitable for young children.
Parking is on site: turn off County Road S 475 E onto dirt road and drive a quarter mile until the road dead-ends in an unpaved parking lot.
