Volunteer Overview

Cedar Bluffs Nature Preserve in Monroe County is an amazing place to visit, and you can help make it even more amazing!

Assist Land Steward Peter Bauson with the removal of garlic mustard and lesser celandine poppy from the property. Volunteers will be taught about invasive plants, how to identify the focus species and how to remove them.

Invasive plants outcompete our native wildflowers and reduce habitat and food sources for wildlife. Removing invasives allows forests to regenerate ecosystems that benefit native pollinators, insects, birds and more.

The terrain at Cedar Bluffs is moderate to challenging, and after the work is done, Peter will guide those interested to the top of the bluff for some spectacular views. You won't want to miss that!

  • No experience with gardening, habitat restoration, or any tools needed.
  • All ages are welcome.
  • All tools and instructions are provided.
  • The terrain is moderate to challenging.
  • Volunteers should be comfortable hiking over uneven terrain and moderate physical activity including bending.
  • Please come prepared with drinking water, close-toed shoes and weather-appropriate layers.

Please RSVP so we know you’re coming!
