Volunteer – Remove Invasives, Work-off Calories CANCELLED

ChesLen Preserve | Sat, December 15, 2018, 9:00am - 12:00pm


Love nature and want to lend her a helping hand? Grab gloves and join volunteer peers in removing invasives at ChesLen Preserve, one of Chester County’s most picturesque properties!  Meet great people and work-off holiday calories, too!

Your efforts help create forest habitat, improve air quality, and keep our waterways clean. Plus, volunteering with Natural Lands is a great way to learn more about the natural world, and give your time to a great cause.

Bring a filled water bottle, work gloves, and long-handled lopers.

ChesLen Preserve is the largest privately owned nature preserve open to the public in Chester County. Miles of marked hiking trails lead visitors through shady woodlands, flower-filled meadows, fields of corn and soybeans, and stream valleys.

Visitors can also explore Ollie Owl’s NaturePlayGround, where young explorers can climb logs, build stick tee-pees, hunt for bugs, explore small streams, and get a little dirty, tired, and inspired. Free play is encouraged and is a great way for kids to gain an appreciation for nature.

  • Dress for the season and wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes.
  • Long pants and long-sleeved shirt, to protect you from poison ivy and brambles.
  • Bring work gloves and a filled water bottle.
  • Please leave your four-legged friends at home.
