    Adopt-a-Patch at Hawk Cliff Woods

    Join us at Hawk Cliff Woods on September 30th, 1-4pm, for an Adopt-a-Patch workshop.

    The Adopt-a-Patch program aims to engage property stewards in ecological restoration by removing invasive species from their "patch" annually to protect surrounding habitat. This will lead to planting of the cleared areas with native species once the invasive ones have been kicked out! More info on the Adopt-a-Patch program here.

    If you're new to Adopt-a-Patch, you will choose your 10m x 10m patch and receive a patch toolkit containing a bucket, trowel, garbage bags, work gloves, and garlic mustard information sheet. We will provide training in garlic mustard identification and removal, and you will have the opportunity to work on your patch.

    If you already have a patch, this is an opportunity to come out and work on it again. You're welcome to attend the training portion if you'd like a refresher. Don't forget to bring your patch kit!

    Don't want to commit to a patch? That's fine too! Come out for the day and pull Garlic Mustard between the patches.

    This is an outdoor event and will take place rain or shine. Please come dressed for the weather and bring water and snacks.

    Joany's Woods

    Joany's Boardwalk - Volunteers needed!

    We're replacing part of the boardwalk at Joany's Woods and we need your help!

    The current boardwalk has seen lots of wear and tear including damage from falling ash trees. Our goal is to replace the worn out section to ensure visitor safety and protect the sensitive habitat of the wetland.

    The work will take place on October 27th-31st inclusive, at 10am-2pm each day. Volunteers are invited to join us for one or more days. All contributions are appreciated! Please RSVP below so we know how many people to expect.

    This work will involve heavy lifting and use of tools such as drills and hammers. If you're able to bring extra tools that would also be appreciated.
