Stewardship Workdays for Invasive Plant Removal

Stewardship Workdays for Invasive Plant Removal

Woldumar Nature Association is continuing to host our Stewardship Program for the removal of invasive plants. Our Workdays focus on the identification and removal of invasive plants from ecologically sensitive areas of Woldumar Nature Center. This includes the removal of Oriental Bittersweet, Honeysuckle bushes and other invasive plants.
You do not have to have any prior experience to participate, as you will be guided by Emma Campbell, Woldumar's volunteer Steward as well as the Land Stewardship Coordinator for Meridian Township. She will go over how to identify invasive species, as well as field techniques for long-term management.
Invasive species removal is a priority since these plants are a huge threat to native plant populations, which serve as vital sources of food, shelter, and reproduction for local flora and fauna. Invasive species take up valuable space, and nutrients in natural areas, making it difficult for natives to grow and thrive.
All tools, and equipment for removing these plants will be available to each participant. This includes clippers, herbicide bottles, protective plastic gloves, work aprons, saws and loppers. Participants should bring their own working gloves and protective eyewear if available. Long pants, long sleeves and water-resistant / proof shoes or boots are recommended.
We will be meeting every other Saturday from 10:00 to 12:00 in front of Woldumar's Visitor Center. As weather warms, we may meet earlier. Please email Judy Gigante at judygigante@att.net if you are able to attend, so that she can let you know if the session has to be canceled due to weather.
