Volunteer Overview

Prairie Border Nature Preserve in Jasper County, Indiana, offers a unique glimpse into an undisturbed landscape. Undistubed, that is, except for unwanted invasive species.

On May 20, join TNC's Katey Powell with the removal of garlic mustard 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.

  • No experience with gardening, habitat restoration or any tools needed.
  • All ages are welcome and this is a very family-friendly event.
  • All tools and instructions are provided.
  • Herbicide will most likely not be used at this event.
  • The terrain here is easy to moderate.
  • 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.
