Sundown Meadow- Stewardship Volunteer Days

View Schedule
Description

Sundown Meadow contains a variety of ecosystems including prairie and woodland. There are many opportunities to be part of the restoration process, where volunteers are pushing back invasive species such as buckthorn and garlic mustard to bring back nearly lost habitats.

The regularly scheduled stewardship day at Sundown Meadow for August 11th is cancelled as volunteers are welcomed to attend the South West Ecology Gathering at Cap Sauers. Please REGISTER HERE.
