Stewardship Workday at Minnie Skwarek Nature Preserve (Second Saturday)

March 10, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


March is a beautiful time to visit Minnie Skwarek Nature Preserve, when the early spring wildflowers start to emerge. But in order for the native plants to thrive, we need your help to remove invasive shrubs, like multiflora rose, at 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.
