Invasive Species Removal Volunteer Day


Join us to remove invasive species at the Pontotoc Ridge Preserve and Oka' Yanahli Preserve

Pontotoc Ridge Preserve

At Pontotoc Ridge Preserve we will cut down eastern redcedar trees and haul the branches and woody debris into piles. Bring your loppers, chainsaws, and brushcutters or just bring your leather gloves and enthusiasm.  We need all hands on deck! 

TNC will provide gas and oil for chainsaws and cutters, plus snacks and beverages.

Oka' Yanahli Preserve

At Oka' Yanahli Preserve, this workday involves digging up exotic musk thistle, cutting and bagging seed heads. Please bring your own hand clippers if you have them.

We will provide shovels, bags, snacks and beverages.

Due to rough terrain and thorny vegetation (cactus), volutneers must wear long pants, long sleeves and sturdy boots to all volunteer workdays. Additionally, please bring your own lunch, gloves, and re-usable water bottle.
