Earth Day Community Service with Flanders Nature Center
Flanders Nature Center and Land Trust will host an Earth Day community service event for teens and young adults on April 22, starting at 9:30am. Volunteers will work to remove non-native plant species on a Flanders preserved property. Non-native or invasive plants have a negative effect on native plants and wildlife communities. The goal is to reduce, minimize or eliminate the invasive plants, clearing the way for local species to reclaim their territory and creating a healthy environment for the plants and animals that call Connecticut home.
Volunteers are asked to bring lots of water, snacks and lunch. They should wear closed-toe footwear, long pants and work gloves, and bring shovels and pruning shears/loppers/clippers to this event.
Community service hours can be provided for this event. Meeting location will be sent to those who have signed up to volunteer.
For more information and to sign up to volunteer, call 203-263-3711 ext. 14 or email [email protected]. Location: 5 Church Hill Rd, Woodbury.
