Lionel Hampton-Beecher Hills Stewardship

October 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Eco-A partners with James Tyler and Friends of Lionel Hampton-Beecher Hills Nature Preserve for a Stewardship naturalist education & volunteer work session.

Note: Participation in this Stewardship session counts as credit toward completion of our on-line Eco-Literacy course, click here for details.

We’ll walk about 1.5 to 2 miles on natural trails to look for and eradicate patches of invasive species, while also learning how to ID special species that indicate character of the forest in different locations. Everyone learns something new on every walk, and we may go a little off trail in some places. 

Please bring a face mask, to wear when 6 feet apart from other folks (You may not have to wear your mask fully if you are working more than 12 feet away from others.) 

Bring water, wear sturdy shoes, and long pants and long sleeves. We’ll provide tools. 

Work gloves are recommended, and due to covid-19 precautions we are currently not re-using gloves, but we’ll have extra pairs of brand new gloves available for $5 which you can take home with you.

To register (RSVP) click HERE  – Details and directions sent to registered participants (limit 15)

A donation of $15 or more helps sustain our programs.
