Participants will assist with an ecological restoration project that is removing invasive shrubs to restore native forest, savannah, and meadow. This is part of an ongoing and larger effort to restore parts of Kellys Run to pollinator garden, meadow and savannah, increasing the overall biodiversity of the preserve.

This work project will involve using hand saws and loppers to remove invasive shrubs like multiflora rose, bush honeysuckle and autumn olive. We will provide gloves and the hand tools. The work area is a half mile hike from the parking area over easy terrain. There are port-a-pots at the parking area of Kellys Run.

Recommended for ages16+. Under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Wear closed-toe shoes and long pants, and dress for the weather.

Bring drinking water.

This event will run rain or shine. Severe weather cancellations will be made on site.
