Invasive Species Removal Volunteer Day

Oklahoma

If you’ve seen an Eastern red cedar tree, you’ve probably seen Chinese privet. These two go leaf-in-leaf for notorious invasive species in Oklahoma. Chinese privet is an aggressive and troublesome invasive often forming dense thickets in bottom-land forests, along fencerows, and eventually infiltrating forests, fields, and right-of-ways. Join us to eradicate this invasive species at Oka’ Yanahli Preserve!

There are two work day options to choose from: October 12 or November 9. Use the sign up links below!

Please bring loppers, handsaws, gloves, and bug spray; long pants, long sleeves and sturdy shoes are recommended. Lunch provided after each work day.
