Wildlife Work Party

Date: 14-Nov-2015
Capacity: 40 (88% booked)

Details

Help build wildlife habitat with the Forest Park Conservancy!  

When: Saturday, November 14, 9 am - 12 pm

Where: Birch Trailhead on NW 53rd Drive (Follow link to view map.) Carpooling is encouraged. 

Why: This fall our staff will tackle a stand of invasive holly trees on the border of Forest Park. Volunteers are needed to help cut up the holly and make brush piles for wildlife!

Cutting the fallen holly trees into pieces helps prevent branches from sprouting roots and growing new trees (yeah, holly does that), and piling up the cut pieces helps create shelter and hiding places for birds and other animals. 

Remember to pack a water bottle and dress warmly for all weather conditions. Waterproof layers and sturdy shoes with traction are required for your safety. All training, tools and work gloves will be provided.
