Stewardship Workday at Lamberton Lake Fen Nature Preserve (Second Saturday)

January 13, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Details

Each winter, volunteers come out to Lamberton Lake, bundled in warm clothes and armed with loppers, to restore the fen. Lamberton Lake Fen is threatened by takeover by invasive glossy buckthorn and years of diligent work have started to show amazing sings of success. We’ll warm up after the workday at Hideout brewery, just down the road from the preserve.

About Second Saturday Events

The Land Conservancy’s 16 nature preserves contain an incredible diversity of natural features including prairies, forests, and wetlands that are great places to explore. However, invasive species and altered natural processes threaten to degrade the ecological quality of many of our preserves. Active management is often needed to ensure the long-term sustainability of these wonderful natural areas, and we need your help.

Fortunately, through our Second Saturdays event series, there are now plenty of opportunities to get involved.

From 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on the second Saturday of every month, the Land Conservancy will host a volunteer event that focuses on ecological restoration activities including invasive species removal, seed collecting, and native plant installation. Volunteers may also be involved with trail maintenance, general clean-up, or other tasks that help visitors better enjoy our magnificent natural areas.

Tools, work gloves, water, and snacks will be provided.
