*** You MUST contact the posted workday leader listed below to make sure the workday location or details have not changed, as these events are posted in advance. ***

Description

As our removal of Garlic Mustard and spraying resprouting shrubs winds down, we move into the next phase of summer work – yellow clover and wild parsnip removal. Some of this work is done pulling weeds by hand, and while some will involve using brush cutters. No prior experience is required to do this work, but I need to know who can help so that we have enough equipment to use. Come for part of the day or the whole thing.

What to Bring

If you are interested in pulling weeds by hand, you should have long pants, a long-sleeve shirt, gloves, and sturdy boots (you don’t want wild parsnip to touch bare skin). If you are interested in using the chapter’s brush cutters, please indicate that when you RSVP (so we have the equipment) and you need long pants, a long-sleeve shirt, gloves, sturdy boots and hearing protection. Bring whatever water and food you want for the day. Sunscreen and insect repellent are optional but advised.

RSVP

You must RSVP with the work day organizer (listed below) so we have enough equipment and we can make sure all volunteers for the day have up-to-date information about meeting location.

Volunteer Service Agreement

If you’re joining us for the first time at an event, please complete the fillable Volunteer Services Agreement Form and email it (along with any questions) to National Park Service, (iatr_vip_ice_age_trail@nps.gov). You should also complete the form if you don’t have a Volunteer Services Agreement Form on file, or completed one prior to January 2022.

Description

Having completed our efforts to control and reduce garlic mustard, we now turn to removing re-sprouting brush and other weeds that are invading our oak woodlands. Our preferred method to control these invasives is by herbiciding the plants that have not been killed by our spring burns. We do this work using backpack sprayers to apply a herbicide. On each of the weekends and some weekdays of early June we will scan our various preserves searching for the plants we want to eliminate. No prior experience is required to do this work.

What to Bring

You should have long pants, a long-sleeve shirt, gloves, sturdy boots, and whatever water and food you want for the day. Sunscreen and insect repellent are optional but advised.

Description

As our removal of Garlic Mustard and spraying resprouting shrubs winds down, we move into the next phase of summer work – yellow clover and wild parsnip removal. Some of this work is done pulling weeds by hand, and while some will involve using brush cutters. No prior experience is required to do this work, but I need to know who can help so that we have enough equipment to use. Come for part of the day or the whole thing.

What to Bring

If you are interested in pulling weeds by hand, you should have long pants, a long-sleeve shirt, gloves, and sturdy boots (you don’t want wild parsnip to touch bare skin). If you are interested in using the chapter’s brush cutters, please indicate that when you RSVP (so we have the equipment) and you need long pants, a long-sleeve shirt, gloves, sturdy boots and hearing protection. Bring whatever water and food you want for the day. Sunscreen and insect repellent are optional but advised.

RSVP

You must RSVP with the work day organizer (listed below) so we have enough equipment and we can make sure all volunteers for the day have up-to-date information about meeting location.

Volunteer Service Agreement

If you’re joining us for the first time at an event, please complete the fillable Volunteer Services Agreement Form and email it (along with any questions) to National Park Service, (iatr_vip_ice_age_trail@nps.gov). You should also complete the form if you don’t have a Volunteer Services Agreement Form on file, or completed one prior to January 2022.

Additional information for first-time volunteers.

*** You MUST contact the posted workday leader listed below to make sure the workday location or details have not changed, as these events are posted in advance. ***

Description

Having completed our efforts to control and reduce garlic mustard, we now turn to removing re-sprouting brush and other weeds that are invading our oak woodlands. Our preferred method to control these invasives is by herbiciding the plants that have not been killed by our spring burns. We do this work using backpack sprayers to apply a herbicide. On each of the weekends and some weekdays of early June we will scan our various preserves searching for the plants we want to eliminate. No prior experience is required to do this work.

What to Bring

You should have long pants, a long-sleeve shirt, gloves, sturdy boots, and whatever water and food you want for the day. Sunscreen and insect repellent are optional but advised.
