Serve the Preserve

April 7, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

WVWA needs your help to reforest and restore its preserves to their natural state by helping to remove invasive plant species and replant the area with native trees, shrubs and grasses. Volunteers of all skill levels and ages are invited to participate and learn how to correctly plant a tree. This is a wonderful way to share your values with family members, friends or service groups.

Early spring and late fall are ideal times for planting. This gives the plants time to root and gain stability. WVWA plants a wide variety of native plants, shrubs and sedges; this diversity of food sources is necessary to support the local wildlife and insect populations that live and reproduce in this habitat.

Help WVWA continue our restoration efforts this fall at Camp Woods. Volunteers will plant native trees and shrubs. Please wear sturdy shoes for digging, and bring a shovel and gloves if you have them; otherwise we will provide.

– Bring gloves, a hat and a shovel; WVWA has equipment on hand
– WVWA staff members are available for any necessary instruction
– Snacks and additional tools are provided
