Volunteer – Garlic Mustard Removal
Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary | Sat, April 28, 2018, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Volunteers play a key role in keeping Mariton healthy by pulling up garlic mustard, an invasive plant that takes up space where native plants could thrive. With teamwork and persistence, we are making a difference in our 200-acre Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary.
Volunteering with Natural Lands is a great way to learn about habitats and wildlife, while helping care for natural resources and connecting with like-minded people. Grab gloves, and come out to volunteer with us!
Mariton is perched on the steep slopes of Bougher Hill overlooking the scenic Delaware River. A highlight of the preserve’s trail system is the River Lookout Trail, with an overlook of both the Delaware Canal and the Delaware River 300 feet below.
Mariton’s Nature Center includes a library, meeting space, and ADA restrooms, and is open by prior arrangement.
