Volunteer – Grove Park/Proctor Creek

April 28 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

We invite Eco-A volunteers, neighbors and friends of Grove Park to participate in the continued restoration efforts of this special and unique old-growth forest remnant.

Your volunteer work will help us remove invasive species carefully, without using any harsh treatments that could harm the native forest we are trying to restore. We’ll share the story of why this forest is so special, and we’ll end with a short walk to a beautiful section of Proctor Creek. 

Our volunteers have made great progress by eradicating 90% of the Kudzu outbreaks, and  removing English Ivy from trees – let’s finish off a few of these sections!

Note: Participation in this Stewardship session counts as credit toward completion of our online Eco-Literacy course. Click here for details.

We’ll walk approximately 1/2  to 1 mile along natural trails and some off-trail locations. Please bring work gloves and wear sturdy shoes, and long pants and sleeves are recommended as we will be working in          off-trail areas.

Due to Covid-19 precautions, we are not currently re-using gloves, so please bring your own gloves, or we can provide a brand new, unused pair for $5 that you can take home with you (and use next time).

We’ll supply tools such as clippers, loppers, small saws, and digging tools.  

To register (RSVP) click HERE – details and directions sent to registered participants. 

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