Stewardship Workday at Folkstone Nature Area

October 15 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

REGISTER AT: https://nap.a2gov.org/Folkstone101523

Come to Folkstone to see one of the most underrated native shrubs in our landscape – bladdernut. This tall shrub with striped bark likes it shady and moist. In spring, bladdernut blossoms with hanging clusters of white tubular flowers that smell a little like vanilla custard. Then the “bladders” appear as green, papery, inflated seed capsules which mature over the summer and persist into winter. Let’s remove invasive shrubs to keep the habitat healthy at Folkstone—for the bladdernut shrubs and all the organisms that depend on them. Meet at the park entrance at the north end of Folkstone Ct. Workday sites have unpaved trails and require going off-trail.

Pre-register through VolunteerHub so NAP can plan on enough staff and supplies for a safe and successful event. For your safety, wear long pants, tall socks, and closed-toe shoes. All minors should be accompanied by a guardian. More information: How to prepare for a NAP workday (PDF).
