The bad news: Invasive plants take over ecosystems, out compete native vegetation, and cause reductions in biodiversity. The good news: we can fix this problem by removing invasive plants! What better way to give back this Earth Day than to help support the amazing biodiversity found at Climbers Run Nature Center. We will use pruners to clip out invasive multiflora rose plants from the Climbers Run floodplain. This work is not physically demanding but does involve plants with thorns as you might guess from its name (multiflora ROSE)!

Where to meet

The Russo Barn at Climbers Run Nature Center

What to Expect

Recommended for ages 10 and up (under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult). We will use hand tools including loppers and hand saws to cut out larger invasive shrubs. Restroom facilities are available on-site. This event will be held rain or shine – cancellations for unexpected severe weather are made at the time of the event.

What to Bring

All tools and work gloves will be provided. Wear sturdy shoes. Dress for the weather, and with long pants and long sleeves. Bring drinking water.
