JANUARY


Cedar Swamp Invasive Plant Weed-outVolunteers removing invasive shrubs.
Sunday, January 12       1 - 3 p.m.

Location: Cedar Swamp Wildlife Area - Vogel Tract View Map

Project Description: Non-native ornamental shrubs are stifling native wildlife habitat at this Cedar Swamp Wildlife Area site by outcompeting native plants and taking over the forest understory. Volunteers will be using hand saws, pruners and loppers to remove the shrubs. Join us as we work to open the understory from these non-native plants!

What to bring/wear: Work gloves, hand saws, pruners and loppers will be provided, but volunteers may bring their own. Volunteers are encouraged to wear sturdy boots or old sneakers and dress in layers.

Age requirement: Volunteers for this project must be at least 15 years old. Those under the age of 18 must provide a parental consent form. An adult must accompany volunteers under the age of 16.

Contact: Volunteers are asked to pre-register with contact information in case of inclement weather leading to postponement. For more information or to volunteer for this event, contact Lynne Pusey at 302-735-3600 or lynne.pusey@state.de.us.
