Please consider helping Invasive Management Area volunteers to remove alien invasive plants that degrade natural areas by out-competing native plants for resources.
Wear long sleeves and pants (due to poison ivy), and sturdy footwear. Bring water to stay hydrated (the park has water fountains so reusable bottles are recommended), and use insect repellant for protection against ticks and mosquitoes. We will supply gloves and equipment.
Please let Elaine know if you can participate or have questions. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Directions to the Invasive Management Area: Take Springfield/644W exit from I-95, which puts you on Old Keene Mill Road. At 3rd stoplight, turn right on Hanover Rd.
