Volunteer Overview

Monthly workdays are planned through the summer on the following dates:

  • Friday, February 17
  • Friday, March 17
  • Friday, April 21
  • Friday, May 19
  • Friday, June 16

Volunteers are needed to help remove English ivy and other invasive plant species. These workdays will contribute to the park’s conservation efforts of removing invasive plants that can crowd out native species, increase tree mortality, alter soil composition and reduce habitat.
