Join us for a day of maintenance at Cool Spring Preserve! Learn how to identify spring wildflowers and their non-native weedy competitors. Learn how to best remove these undesirable weeds to protect and preserve native species. We'll work together to accomplish invasive species removal in preparation for Spring.  Gather among friends for some hot coffee, cocoa, tea and cookies while we complete some outdoor maintenance work at Cool Spring Preserve.

Invasive species removal is necessary to promote high quality native habitat at Cool Spring Preserve.  Your help is appreciated as every pair of hands helps make a difference! 

All necessary training, tools, gloves will be provided. Light refreshments will also be available. Cool Spring Preserve has indoor bathrooms.

We will be learning about invasive plants that are commonly seen in the spring, how to identify them, how they impact our native habitats and what techniques best control them. Informational handouts will be supplied, and then we will hit the trails in guided groups and get to work removing invasive plants.
