Eggers Woods Volunteer Stewardship Volunteer Days

View Schedule
Description

Eggers is a mosaic of wooded ridges where spring wildflowers thrive and narrow wetlands filled with sedges, marsh grasses, and waterfowl. Help remove invasive species that threaten to crowd out native plants. Trained leaders show you how to identify plants that don't belong and demonstrate how to safely use hand tools. Workdays may also include native seed collection, hand pulling invasive plants, and nature walks to enjoy the preserve.

Requirements & Documents
Requirements

All the necessary tools and work gloves are provided. All participants should be dressed for a day of outdoor work. Please wear covered shoes (hiking boots or tennis shoes) and long pants. Clothing should be made of natural fibers such as cotton or wool (no synthetic clothing) as workdays often have brushpile burns and stray embers can "burn" clothing. Please wear comfortable clothes that can get dirty and your own drinking water. Depending on the season, a hat, sunscreen, or insect repellant may be good items to bring to a workday.

To ensure enough tools and supplies can be provided, groups (3 or more volunteers) please call John Pastirik at least two days before the event.
