Looking for a volunteering opportunity? Volunteer with the Stewardship Team and Natural Areas Conservancy to protect forested areas in Forest Park! The event is taking place this Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.

Volunteers will learn how to identify and safely remove invasive plants as well as close trails in order to help restore the forest and create a healthier ecosystem.

If you’re planning on attending, come dressed in sturdy boots or shoes, long pants and clothing that can get dirty. Please bring your own water bottle for this event.

Volunteers will meet up at Woodhaven Boulevard and Forest Park Drive in Forest Park.

Space is limited and registration is required. Also, volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.
