Event details: We will be focusing on the removal of Buckthorn and Honeysuckle, which are invasive species that are crowding out the native trees and plant life.

  • Plan for variable weather – bring a few layers of clothing and rain gear if the weather is questionable.
  • Sturdy hiking or work boots (no tennis shoes) and leather work gloves.
  • A bottle of water, backpack, insect repellent, sunscreen

No previous experience is necessary; training is provided by certified volunteer crew leaders. There will be roles for all ages and abilities. Tools will be provided.

If this is your first time volunteering for the Ice Age Trail Alliance, or you haven’t filled out a 301a Volunteer Agreement form, please download the form and bring it with you to the workday.
