Invasive Species Removal Workday at Beckwith Preserve

September 30 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

On September 30 from 10AM-12PM, Legacy Land Conservancy will be leading a workday at Beckwith Preserve. Join us to help clear brush and remove the invasive species autumn olive.

Volunteers (using loppers and hand-saws) will cut back shrubs to two-inch stumps and help haul cut plant material. Stumps will be treated with herbicide by Legacy staff to ensure these hardy invasive plants don’t re-sprout in the spring.

Please dress for the weather and in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Pants and closed toe shoes are a must, regardless of the temperature, to protect from poison ivy and getting scratched up while working outside.

Legacy will provide tools and work gloves, but you are welcome to bring your own if you have a pair you like. Don’t forget a water bottle and sunscreen. And, we suggest you bring bug spray to reduce the risk of exposure to ticks. Meet at the parking lot off M-106 on the east side of Stockbridge.

Please RSVP by going to https://legacylandconservancy.org/events/ and filling out the Google form
