Friends of Belle Isle’s Environmental Stewardship Committee needs your help removing invasive plants in the park’s old growth forest. Each stewardship day, volunteers will meet and enjoy a breakfast snack, a hot drink, and a meet-and-greet.
Bring your favorite water bottle, warm boots, and a smile. Tools and work gloves will be on hand. Most work days we will remove woody invasive plants such as honeysuckle, privet, and buckthorn. The work is not very strenuous. We work along a paved path in the forest.
Saturday, Feb 19, 9am-12pm

Friends meet at the Belle Isle Nature Zoo at the East end of the island. Please RSVP to Mebby Pearson before each event so there will be enough bagels & coffee on hand.
