Volunteer Overview

Join The Nature Conservancy at Cascade Head Preserve for a blackberry removal event. We will be digging invasive blackberry out by the roots.

Working out in the grassland, we will focus on seeking and destroying small blackberry cane shoots before they have a chance to grow into large patches. The hike to the project will be 4-5 miles round trip with elevation gain and will involve working on uneven and sometimes steep terrain off trail. Must be 16 or older to participate.
