Our middle schoolers and up are invited to help us cut some elaeagnus (invasive silverberry) to protect the Nature Preserve! We did this as part of our class in the Spring and the kids enjoyed it so much it is now a service project. You can bring your own long-handled pruners and gloves or they will be provided. Families are welcome, but little ones will need to help with non-cutting activities. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy a hike while you're here.
