Stewardship Workday at Olson Nature Area
August 5 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Pre-register through VolunteerHub https://nap.a2gov.org/Olson080523
Olson Park was once a gravel pit, but is now a place to play soccer, ride a bike, or take a hike. It’s also home to many butterflies including the declining monarch. Non-native plants are invading the open meadows, threatening pollinator habitats. Help NAP remove these unwanted plants and improve habitat for butterflies and their friends. Meet at the entrance on Dhu Varren Rd, just east of Pontiac Trail. Volunteers will use their hands to pull small-to-medium plants from the ground. 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).
