To recognize Invasive Species Awareness Week, volunteers will gather on July 12 at 9 a.m. to remove invasive nonnative plant species from Stillwell Woods Preserve, in the large field as well as trails.
Volunteers will learn about nonnative invasive plants and why they are so detrimental to our ecosystems as well as the efforts that HOBAS are making at the preserve to help combat this problem.
Bring garden gloves and insect repellent if you have them, extras will be provided to the volunteers as will tasty snacks and water.
