Opportunity Details

Cranberry Slough Nature Preserve - Stewardship Volunteer Days

Description

Cranberry Slough Nature Preserve is surrounded by woodlands, savanna, and prairie. Distinguished by its peat bog ecosystem cradled by rolling upland woods, the site is a relic of the glacial era and supports habitats uncommon this far south. Restoration activities focus on around the removal of invasive species like honeysuckle and barberry. Collection and distribution of seeds may also be done in season.

Requirements & Documents
Requirements

Wear long sleeves, long slacks or jeans, and sturdy shoes. Natural fiber clothing (wool or cotton) works best, especially when burning brush piles. Multiple layers on cool days allow you to shed a layer as the day warms.
We provide gloves and the necessary tools, as well as snacks.
